Description

With this special strain, sweet lavender is now easier to start from seed. The wonderful Hidcote has the loveliest perfume of all the English lavenders. The long blooming plants with their soft narrow silvery foliage and vivid, deep purple velvety calyxes make beautiful landscape plants. Cut and hang in the richly scented flower spikes upside down in a cool place for fragrant long-lasting bouquets and sachets, or leave the blooms to charm your senses and attract a flotilla of summer butterflies.

Planting and growing information can be found on the seed packet image.

Planting & Care

Planting: In early spring, sow lavender seeds 1" apart in a container of seed starting mix, cover very lightly and keep at 65°F. Keep container moist but not soggy until seedlings slowly emerge over 14 - 25 days, providing a good light source. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, transplant 2" apart into deeper containers. Plant outside in a well-drained sunny spot when plants are 2 - 3" tall after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions.

Growing: 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, Hardy Hidcote lavender is perennial to Zone 5. Plants flower lightly the first season and come into full bloom by their second summer. After blooming season, prune and shape the plants while cutting off spent flower stalks.
