Lobelia (Trailing) - Rainbow Cascade Mixed
This is just what hanging baskets call for, a colourful range of hanging lobelia in burgundy, bicoloured white and blue, white and pink, violet, lilac and Cambridge blue. Try this lovely mixture also in tubs and window boxes. It flowers from mid-summer to autumn.
Sow late winter to mid spring at 18-24C in a good seed compost. Sow seed on surface of compost and gently firm down compost. Keep soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 14-21 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant in bunches of 3 or 4 per 7.5cm pot and grow on in cooler conditions. Plant up into containers or hanging baskets and leave for 1-15 days before moving out of doors.
