If you love lavender, you must try this English variety! Very compact, attractive plants are slow growing to 18". Lots of flower spikes with very dark purple, fragrant flowers that attract butterflies and bees. Add the edible flowers to a simple syrup to make craft cocktails/mocktails or lavender lemonade. Bake into bread, cookies, or scones, and flavor jellies. Excellent for making sachets, wreaths, and dried flower arrangements; makes a wonderful short hedge, container or rock garden plant.

I was a little disappointed with only a 50% germination rate, but then I read more about how difficult it is growing Lavender from seed and felt better. The plants I did get were very healthy looking and will hopefully make it thru the winter.

I was really looking forward to growing a bed of lavender and surrounding myself with a garden of sweet lavender. I started these seeds indoors with a grow light in 6 cells with no germination. I also tried English Lavender and that too was a dud :-(. I ended up buying lavender plants, defeating the purpose of starting seeds.

Of all of our varieties, lavender takes the longest to germinate, up to 90 days which in itself can test our patience. A customer service agent will be with you shortly.
