Every year I sow a few Lavatera seeds and usually germination is good and I get plenty of plants to fill in spaces around the garden. This year germination was poor, and I only got about half a dozen plants. They come in three colours, pale pink, dark pink and the odd white one. For me, the nicest part of the plant, are the buds, which are like furled-up umberellas. They have trumpet shaped flowers which go on until autumn to a height of about 2ft. with grey-green leaves.
