BEST TO PLANT INDOORS

In early spring, sow lavender seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix, cover very lightly and keep at 60 to 70°. Keep evenly moist but not soggy until seedlings slowly emerge over 14 to 25 days, providing a good light source. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, transplant 2 inches apart into deeper containers. Plant outside in a well-drained sunny spot when plants are 2 to 3 inches tall after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions.

Space 18 inches apart.


GROWING NOTES

Because perennial lavender’s small seeds germinate slowly and unevenly, we strongly recommend starting them indoors so you can tend them carefully. After seedlings are well established, plant them out in a sunny spot with excellent drainage and good air circulation or in big, well-drained pots. If given excellent drainage and good air circulation, Spanish lavender is perennial in areas where winter temperatures stay above 10°. Plants flower lightly the first season and come into full bloom in their second summer. After blooming season, prune and shape the plants while cutting off spent flower stalks.
