    The marshmallow flower is valued not only for its rare color, but also for its beautiful tall bouquets that remain fresh for up to two weeks. It is grown everywhere: in borders, mixborders, flower beds in company with phlox, rudbeckia, and cosmos. He has settled down where other crops will not grow; he does not even care about poor sandy soils. However, the crop happily responds to nitrogen fertilizing.

    • do not tolerate transplantation, so they are sown immediately in a sunny area, protected from the wind;
    • marshmallow seeds are sown in open ground in June-July, shallow holes are made, where 2-3 seeds are placed, sprinkled with a layer of soil no more than 3 cm;
    • the distance between the holes is 30-40 cm;
    • crops are thinned out in the phase of two true leaves, choosing the strongest shoots;
    • Shoots are expected in the fall; they overwinter well, but you can sprinkle them with leaves.
