FRENCH LAVENDER - organic seeds
Lavandula stoechasLavender is grown both for its intense fragrance and for the pretty flowers, that bloom from spring to autumn. Not as hardy as culinary lavender. Will need good drainage.
Lavender tolerates various types of soils, but does best in dry, sandy, well-drained alkaline soil in full sun.
Before sowing, you need to chill the seeds in the refrigerator for a week this will break the seeds dormancy. Start seeds indoors or from 11 weeks before your last spring frost date until early summer. Plant them no deeper than 6 mm (1/4 inch). Seeds take about 20days to germinate. When large enough to handle, plant seedlings outside after danger of frost is gone.
Lavender quite a slow germinator and a slow grower. To encourage flowering, add organic fertilizer.
