Soil Preperation

Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

Sow the seeds on the surface of moist compost in pots, modules or trays.
Lightly cover the seeds with a thin layer of fine compost or vermiculite.
Place the containers in a shaded cold frame or cold greenhouse for 2 weeks. The seeds require a cold spell before germination can commence.
If the spring is unusually warm or germination is very slow, place the seeds in a fridge for 7 - 10 days. After this time move to a warmer location to germinate.
Once germinated move to a well-lit , frost free area. When the lavender seedlings are large enough to handle prick out into individual 7.5 cm diameter pots.
Grow on in a cool frost free location until the plants are established.
Plant out when all risk of frost has passed. Before planting out harden off over 7 - 10 days to acclimatize the young plants to the outdoor temperature.

Direct Sowing

For best results start the plants indoors.


Growing On

Water newly planted lavender plants well until established.
Do not plant too closely together as they need good air circulation to thrive and to keep healthy.
If growing in containers use a loam-based compost such as John Innes with some added course sand to help with drainage. It is best to grow lavender in large deep containers at least 45 cm in diameter. Water well in hot dry weather however reduce the watering over the cooler months.
To keep the plants tidy and compact prune annually in late summer as soon as the flowers have faded. Cut off the old flower spikes and about 2 - 3 cm of leafy growth. Avoid cutting into old wood as the plant will rarely grow back again.

TIP

If the plant becomes straggly it is best to remove it and either take cuttings or sow new seed.
