"Vera" Lavender Seeds
40 seeds per packet
"Vera" is thought to be the original species of lavender. Highly prized for its amazing fragrance and medicinal properties. Known for its relaxing and soothing qualities. Used for centuries to keep moths out of linens and creates a divine smell on bed sheets.
Lavender likes full sun and a well draining, slightly alkaline soil. Lavender is hardy to Zone 5. It will not tolerate poor drainage, full shade or high humidity. Space plants 3'-4' apart when planting out.
Use sterile well draining potting mix when planting and do not bury seed, but merely press the seed on the surface. Keep moist but not soggy. Seeds can take 4-6 weeks to germinate, but may germinate faster if scarified by sandpaper. Seedlings that are blue-green are healthy and happy. Seedlings that are yellowish may be getting too much water, the soil may not be draining fast enough and/or the soil may be too cool.

Ive never had any luck growing lavender. Not from plants, not from cuttings and not from seed. This packet of seeds was no exception. Didnt get one plant.
