Description

A compact variety of lavender with beautiful Violet flowers that have 'Rabbits ears' protruding from them. It is very useful as an attractant of Bees and a worthy addition to any hot sunny garden

Cultivation

Sow the seeds in Trays of pots of a good quality moist seed compost and lightly cover
Ideally place in a propagator but any warm place will do
Maintain a temp of 15 - 18 Deg C for 2 weeks
The seed will then require a period of cold for 3 - 6 weeks (a cool refridgerator is ideal)
The seeds should then be returned to 15 - 18 Deg C for a further 6 - 10 weeks - If germination has still not happened then the seed will require a further period of cooling Down (0 deg C is fine) for a further 3 - 6 weeks
During this time regularly check the seed for signs of germination, as soon as you spot germination return to 15 - 18 deg C ad allow the plants to grow.
Once large enough to handle transplant into 3" pots and grow on in a cool greenhouse/coldframe.
When ready to plant out space the plants approx 12" apart and in full sun.

Lavender is not hard to grow but the seed germinates eratically so allow time for germination (upto 90 days). To maintain a good crop of flowers trim the plants annually - do not cut back to hard or new growth may not appear.
