Happy plants

These seeds had a great germination rate. Like all lavenders I've tried from seed, there is a large variable in days until germination. Several sprouted within a couple of weeks and dozens followed within another 4 weeks. I won't have flowers until next year but the plants are happy and healthy looking.
