LAVANDULA SPICATA 'MUFFET'S CHILDREN'
This amazingly dwarf lavender has short-stemmed fragrant blue flowers studding a medicine ball-sized silver-grey bush. Ideal for a small rock garden or even for formal edging, the odd seedling may vary but most will be very compact indeed.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
Common name:Lavandula angustifolia nana
