trailing lobelia
« on: June 10, 2024, 14:20 »
What has happened to mine.  They look very lush a green, but no flowers and certainly not trailing.  It is almost as if they have bolted.   I don't mind the look, but the idea was that they should trail around the pelargoniums in the centre.  I cannot even see these as they haven't grown.  Should I dig out the centres, or cut back the lobelia, or just leave as is.   Not sure, advice please.   :unsure:  Mrs Bouquet

Some of mine have only just started to flower Mrs B, I reckon it's the grotty weather making them late. I'm just leaving mine to sort themselves out, though....
Good luck!

My ordinary lobelias and my large-flowering begonias are well behind this year. They are only just producing flowers and only a few, so just grit your teeth and you never know they may get a hefty spurt on when things warm up.
I work very hard so don't expect me to think as well.
