This delicate and versatile variety of lavender is well known for its beauty and fragrance adding color and appeal to any garden. This long blooming hardy plant can be dried and used in sachets and potpourris. It is also popular in many dessert dishes.
Sowing: To prep your seeds for sowing, refrigerate them for one month before planting. Use a soil with optimal drainage and plant the seeds just below the surface. Maintain moist soil and a temperature of 60-64 degrees Fahrenheit while keeping out of very hot sun. Germination may take up to a month, and plants will reach an appropriate transplanting size in about 6 months. Ideally, you will want to transplant in late spring or fall. Lavender plants prefer full sun and rocky, sandy, soil that drains well.
