Lotus

Nelumbo are fast growing plants that will quickly fill the container they are planted in.

Planting time: Plant tubers in the spring before they start producing leaves. Once the plant has aerial leaves add a fertiliser tablet every two weeks until the end of August.

Flowering time: June to August.

Aspect: Position in a sheltered site in full sun.

Hardiness: These lotus are fully hardy, they require heat in the summer in order to grow a resting tuber large enough to last the winter. In cooler climates they will benefit from growing under cover.
