Light preference Sun

Sowing time/depth ,
A fast growing lavender with finely divided grey-green foliage and delicate, deep-purple flowers spikes. A very pretty filler for any sunny spot in the garden. Happily self-seeds. I have classified it as a half-annual because although some sources say it is perennial, in my experience it does not survive UK winters, even when soil conditions are right.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow under cover any time from late winter to early summer, on the surface of moist, good-quality compost, covering with a sprinkling of sieved compost or fine vermiculite. Germination is usually reliable, taking about two weeks, but seeds may benefit from a period of cold, so if germination does not occur, place the sown pot in a sealed plastic bag and place in the fridge for a few weeks, then return to warmer conditions. Transplant seedlings to individual pots and grow on, planting out after all danger of frost has passed. Can also be direct sown.
