The most commonly-grown lavender will produce long-stemmed, bright blue flowers which are ideal for cutting, drying or to perfume linen, both the flowers and foliage being strongly-perfumed. Long-lived and easy-to-grow, it benefits from a close haircut early each spring to encourage fresh growth.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
