Lavender seeds

Lavender, or Lavendula seeds, require a pre-chill treatment prior to germination. Mix the seeds with moistened growing medium, place in a plastic bag, and refrigerate for 4-6 weeks. Then remove the seeds and sow on the surface of moistened peat moss, barely covering with additional peat. Place plastic wrap over the trays or pots to help hold in moisture. Seeds will germinate in 21-90 days when kept at 55F-65F degrees. As soon as seedlings appear remove the plastic wrap and place the plants under a source of light.

There are numerous species and varieties of lavender (Lavandula).  Each type has a slightly different appearance and growth habit. Some are upright, some are sprawling, and sometimes the flowers are a slightly different hue.  There are many cultivars of lavender, but the sweetest smelling is English Lavender. It's a branching sub-shrub, growing to about 3' tall, with 6"-8" flower spikes. Lavender grows quickly to its maximum height and established plants can be divided in the spring, taking roots with stems attached and replanting to increase your stock of plants. Lavender doesn't need a great deal of care, but you can feed in early spring with a 5-10-10 fertilizer. These flowers grow best in full sun.  If given too much shade, the growth will be thin and flowers will be sparse. For best performance, give your lavender all day sunshine.


Hidcote Blue Lavender

The Lavender English Dwarf Hidcote, 'Lavandula angustifolia', is an improved dwarf variety of Lavender that stays 12 inches high and is very uniform and compact. The English Lavender Dwarf Hidcote has lots of flower spikes growing very dark purple, fragrant, 1/4 to 1/2 inch flowers. The Lavender blooms in late spring and into the summer. The Lavender can be used for a short hedge, edging, rock gardens, and pots. Lavender also are used in sachets and pot pourri.


Tall English Lavender

The Lavender English Tall, 'Lavandula angustifolia (vera)', has the intoxicating fragrance of lavender that has been sought for centuries to lift spirits and freshen scent in the house. If you like the really tall, old fashion, wonderfully fragrant Lavender, choose this variety. The flowers are edible. The English Lavender has lots of flower spikes growing dark purple, fragrant, 1/4 to 1/2 inch flowers. Lavender also are used in sachets and pot pourri.
