Planting Instructions:

  • Location: Choose a well-drained location with full sunlight. Lavender thrives in areas with good air circulation.
  • Soil Preparation: Use well-draining, slightly alkaline soil. If needed, amend the soil with sand or perlite to enhance drainage.
  • Planting Depth: Set the lavender seeds or plants at a depth of 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch in the soil. Ensure proper spacing, allowing for good air circulation.
  • Watering: Lavender prefers moderate water. Water deeply but infrequently to prevent waterlogged soil. Once established, it is relatively drought-tolerant.
  • Fertilization: Use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer sparingly in the spring. Lavender generally doesn't require excessive fertilization.
  • Pruning: Trim spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming and shape the plant. Prune lightly in the spring to maintain a compact form.
  • Germination Rate:
  • Lavender seeds typically have a germination rate of 70-80%, though this can vary based on growing conditions. For optimal results, start seeds indoors in a controlled environment or directly sow them in well-prepared outdoor soil.
  • Blooming Period:
  • Enjoy the beautiful blooms of Hidcote Blue Lavender from June to August, creating a vibrant and fragrant display in your garden.
  • Being a perennial, Lavandula angustifolia returns each year, providing enduring beauty and aromatic pleasure to your garden. Following these planting instructions will help ensure a successful and thriving lavender plant.
