Grow dwarf French Lavender from seed. It's now really easy and cost effective to grow your own exotic French Lavender from seed. What's even better is 'Bandera' is compact, staying at just 20-30cm tall, so would look attractive in terracotta pots on the patio, or as a low hedge. The fragrance is spicy and a little bit addictive! Height and Spread: 20cm (10").

Sow in trays, pots, etc of good seed compost in a propagator or warm place to maintain an optimum temperature of 60-65F (15-18C). Sow in well drained compost, just covering the seed with compost.

After this return to the recommended germination temperature. If germination does not occur in 6-10 weeks return to the fridge for a further 3-6 weeks. Examine regularly whilst in the fridge and remove immediately the seeds show signs of germinating.
