Buy Lobelia 'Trailing Mixed' 40 plus 20 FREE large plug plants: A firm favourite for tubs and hanging baskets


  • 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 the first frosts
  • Hardiness: tender (needs frost protection)

    A luscious blend of colours, which will look great when cascading over the edges of pots, windowboxes or hanging baskets. It flowers profusely from early summer through to autumn, often flowering so much that the foliage is obscured.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5 - 7cm 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 that as we grow these for especially for you, we need to take full payment when you place your order so as to reserve stock for you. See above for despatch dates for this particular plant. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually.

I ordered these with some double petunias and trailing geraniums for some pots and hanging basket. They were small plug plants when arrived and needed careful looking after to begin with before planting out but they are amazing - so pretty and trailing out of all the pots. Healthy too very pleased.

Hi there - I've taken delivery of 3 trays of 40 (+20) plug plants that I'm going to use in baskets and boxes in a few weeks time, but I'm wondering what to do with the plugs right now. Should I plant out to trays so they have some room to expand before going in the baskets? I don't have a greenhouse, so how can I protect them outside from pests, etc?

Hello, If you cannot plant these straight up into the baskets or pots now, then you can pot them up to grow them on. As for pests, they will be prone to attack from slugs and snails, so keep an eye out for these. The most important thing however is to protect them from frost, so cover them with frost fleece if the temperatures drop.

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.
