Botanical Interests "Dwarf Hidcote" Lavender Seeds

Perennial in USDA zones 5-9. Blooms from late spring to summer. 12 tall. Full sun. Small 1/4"-1/2" very dark purple flowers clustered on spikes. This improved dwarf variety stays uniform and compact. Slow-growing. Makes a wonderful short hedge, potted plant, or rock garden specimen. Everyone should have this aromatic plant next to their front door or walkway! The intoxicating fragrance of lavender has been used for centuries to lift spirits and provide a fresh scent for the house. Valuable as an ornamental flower and as an herb, it is useful in the kitchen, for crafts, potpourris, and as a moth repellent. Drought tolerant. Prefers well-drained soil. Do not fertilize. Excellent in rock gardens, used as a short hedge, or in large pots. Seeds take a long time to germinate, as long as 50-60 days. Also requires a chilling period before sowing. Let nature do the work for you, by sowing in the fall and letting winter weather do the rest!

When to plant outside: Prechill seeds (as notes below) for 4-6 weeks (instructions inside packet) and sow in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Recommended to sow outdoors in late fall, so seeds may benefit from cold treatment period that occurs from winter weather.

When to start inside: Prechill seeds (as noted below) and sow 8-10 weeks before last average day of frost. Transplant seedlings after last frost.

Special Germination Instructions: Lavender seeds can sometimes take a very long time to germinate, sometimes as long as 50-60 days. Be patient. A moist cool period can improve germination. You can prechill seeds at 34-42 degrees (in a refrigerator) in moistened media such as seed-starting or potting soil for 4-6 weeks. Or, an easier alternative is planting outside in LATE fall (to prevent seeds from germinating too early and getting nipped by frost).

Harvesting: To harvest flowers, cut flower clusters or strip flowers from the stems just as color begins to show, but before flowers are fully open. Store in a cool, dry place. "
