Planting:Start Indoors: In early spring, sow lavender seeds in a container of seed starting mix, cover very lightly and keep at 60 - 70°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. To Start in the Garden: Sow directly into a well-worked, finely-textured garden bed in full sun when weather is warm and settled. Cover very lightly. Lavender germinates slowly and unevenly; keep seedbed evenly moist and well weeded.
Growing: Given excellent drainage, this hardy lavender is perennial to zone 5. Plants flower lightly the first season, and coming into full bloom by their second summer. After blooming season, prune and shape the plants while cutting off spent flower stalks. Bonemeal is a good soil amendment for lavender.
