Cultivation Advice Lavender Lavendula Angustifolia Blue River

  • Lavender tolerates various types of soils, but does best in dry, sandy, well-drained alkaline soil in full sun.
  • Start seeds indoors or in a propagator from 10 to 12 weeks before your last spring frost date at a minimum temp of 70 degrees. To increase the speed of germination, chill the seeds in the refrigerator for a week before planting.
  • Plant seeds no deeper than 6 mm (1/4 inch). Seeds take from 14 to 28 days to germinate.
  • When large enough to handle, plant seedlings on and transfer gradually outside after all danger of frost is past.
  • Please note Lavender is slow to germinate and is a slow grower once established.
  • Add liquid fertilizer regularly to potted plants to encourage flowering.
  • Although English lavender can live 20 to 30 years, it becomes untidy after a few years, so trim plants back in spring and again in early fall.

Please Note – Lavender seeds are by nature ‘ low and slow’ germinators and one of the harder varieties to grow from seed.  Lavender seeds have a short shelf life (these are the freshest possible), and therefore the germination rate (how many seeds out of 100 come up) is usually pretty low.  They can also take a long time to sprout (two weeks or more) and this increases the risk of fungal problems, with the potential for seed to rot if insufficient temperature is provided.
