How To Grow Mauritanica Mallow From Seed: Mallow seeds can be sown directly in place from April to June. They can also be started earlier indoors to get a head start on the growing season.

Sow the seeds evenly in pots, seed starting modules or directly into your flower bed. Thin out the seedlings once they become established, and plant them in their final spot, 40cm apart.

Alternatively, plant the seeds in Autumn directly into your flower bed for an early flower display the following year.

Mallow is also a highly beneficial pollinator that is extremely popular with bees.
