When to Sow Munstead Dwarf Lavender Seeds

February to August

Where to Sow

Under cover sow the seeds into pots or trays on the surface of a good seed compost and then lightly cover with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place at a temperature of 21-25°C (70-75°F) until seeds germinate which usually takes 14-21 days.

What to do Next

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out 23cm (9") apart. Overwinter late summer sowings in a cold frame and plant out the following spring.

Store

In airtight jars in dark.

Dry

Tie in small bunches and hang in an airing cupboard or other warm, dark place. Strip flowers from stems when dry.

Uses

To make lavender bags, pot-pourri and mixed herbs cushions.

Medicinal

The scent of lavender has a calming effect on the nerves. The leaves and flowers make a beneficial tea used to treat headaches, faintness and insomnia lavender makes an attractive and fragrant hedge and its silver/grey colour and formal shape make it an important border plant.

Handy Tip

Lavender flowers are edible and can be used in sweet or savoury dishes. Can also make delicious lavender sugar or add to cookies, sorbets, jams or jellies.
