mine only lasted one sumer.i pruned it in spring but it died, or did i kill it, will it come back, should i put another one there?anyone know
They are fairly hard to kill - but I'd wait til the spring & see if it sprouts, if it doesn't you can plant a new one then
should i prune it again do you know?my prvious one lasts years but then died, i thought someone said theydid suddenly die, but i expected longer than one year!
Hang on - I'm getting a flashbackI think (this is very vague) that mallows last for years then all on them die all at the same time (but that could be a load of nonesense)No idea about pruningI cut back a 14 ft one to a 6 inch stick, dug it up, moved it, it grew for 3 yrs then died
They are short lived so its quite normal for them to give up after a few years, prob better not to prune them too hard though.I'd just get another one as they are not too £££
Aren't they biennial? <ponders>
According to the RHS site:"Lavatera can be annuals, biennials, perennials or sub-shrubs, with long-stalked, palmately lobed leaves and large, funnel-shaped flowers in summer."
