Plant Information

Top Tips

Your Lophospermum are supplied as jumbo plugs - larger sized plug plants that are slightly more established and can be planted into pots or baskets straight away.

Care Guide

  • Initially your Lofos plants should be potted into 7.5-9cm (3-3½in) pots using a good quality compost. If planting directly into a basket, allow 3-4 plants for a 12-14in basket, or 6 for a really dense effect.
  • Grow on in a greenhouse, conservatory or indoors at a minimum temperature of 15C (60F), moving outside during late May or early June and only when the risk of frost has passed.
  • In the early stages keep the plants on the dry side and provide good ventilation as the young plants can be susceptible to the fungal disease.
  • Pinch out the growing tip to produce a bushy habit when the plants have reached a height of about 10cm (4in).
  • To keep your plants growing vigorously keep the plants well-watered and apply a balanced liquid feed at 10 day intervals.
  • Mature plants can be over-wintered in a greenhouse at a minimum temperature of 5C (41F).
