1 packet (30 lavender seeds) (26623)

Sow in trays, pots of good seed compost in a propagator or warm place to maintain an optimum temperature of 15-18°C (60-65F). Sow in well drained compost, just covering the seed with compost. Sow at any time of the year. Germination can be slow. After sowing, seal container in a polythene bag and leave at 15-18°C (60-65F) for 2 weeks, then place in a refrigerator (not freezer) for 6 weeks. After this return to the recommended germination temperature. If germination does not occur in 6-10 weeks return to the fridge for a further 6 weeks. Examine regularly whilst in the fridge and remove immediately seed show signs of germinating.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in a cold frame and plant out the following spring 30cm (12in) apart in full sun.

Water regularly throughout summer until lavender plants are fully established. Once established, they are reasonably drought tolerant. Immediately after flowering, prune English lavender back to within 2cm (1") of the previous year's growth to maintain a compact, well shaped plant. Culinary idea: Make delicious lavender sugar or lavender and mint jelly from the freshly picked flowers.
