Buy Lobelia 'Bedding Mixed' 40 plus 20 FREE plug plants: Zillions of tiny summer flowers

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to October
  • Hardiness: tender (needs frost protection)

    Each flower is quite small, but as they appear in such high numbers, they really put on a great show. These are 'upright' lobelias, so they remain relatively compact and are perfect for creating low-growing colour in the bedding scheme. They can also be used to add oomph to windowboxes and pots.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 4 - 6cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden once all chance of frost has passed.

    Please note: We grow these especially for you, so we do request that full payment is made when you place your order. See above for despatch dates. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually. Please also be aware that the pot in the photograph is not included.

    Garden care: Pot up and grow on under glass until all risk of frost has passed and they can be planted outside in a well-prepared bed. Pinching out the growing tips will encourage them to become bushier, and feed with a high-potash fertiliser at regular intervals throughout the summer.

Pretty for filling out pots and front of borders


Came in neat little plugs. I should have spread them out a bit more when planting out. I kept them watered and they did well.




My favourite bedding plants


This was the second year that I have ordered the lobelia bedding. The disadvantage is that they arrive as small plug plants and have to be potted on and over-wintered in a cold frame or greenhouse. However, the plants are very healthy and all survived the "beast from the east" in my cold frame. In the spring, the plants grew on quickly and flowered continuously from May through to around November. They looked absolutely stunning and received many compliments. I generally prefer to buy perennials but make an exception for these lobelia because they are so colourful, long-lasting and such good value.




Beautiful and long lasting


The Lobelia set off the other plants in window boxes beautifully and lasted well past the first frost

If you do nothing else...water new plants. Make sure new additions do not suffer during dry spells. Plant up summer containers bedding once the threat of frosts has passed. Feed container plants about six weeks after planting. If it’s a nice day...trim he

Plant up summer containers

After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.
