HERB LAVENDER VERA
Vera is a tall, robust lavender suitable for hedging or individual plants. With silvery foliage and highly scented blue-lilac flowers which appear in July - September, it makes a wonderful addition to the garden. The scent of lavender is said to have a calming effect on the nerves and tea made from the leaves and flowers may be used to treat headaches and insomnia. The dried flowers can be used for pot-pourri and lavender bags. This is the most cold hardy variety of English Lavender.
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.
