Mallow

Zone Wexford Ireland | TL added on April 15, 2016 | Answered

My Mallow bush was planted last year and bloomed beautifully. I cut back the dead flowers and tidied the bush, it is about 3 - 4 foot high. This year it looks bare to date and not a sign of a bud. Should it be in bud yet or is it too early? Also, I have a Camellia that only had about a dozen flowers and they dropped too soon. I know it is not in the right place in the garden and would like to move it to a sunny spot. Can I lift it now and let it grow through the summer? It is about 10 years old and never really thrived. Thank you for any information you can give. T.L.

Mallow can be only a short lived perennial.
If you don't see new growth your plant may have died off in the winter.
You can plant new seeds or plants this spring.

It is best to transplant a Camellia when it is dormant, either fall or winter.
Older specimens are not as easily transplanted.
