Planting+

The lavender seed tape needs no prior treatment and are therefore ready to use.

Sowing in the garden, preferably choose a spot in full sun from March to June. Loosen the soil with a fork to at least 30 cm deep. Draw a furrow 1 cm deep and label the row. Lay the seed tape and cut off at the correct length. Do not cover the tape with soil (lavender requires light to germinate). Sprinkle the seed tape with water. For multiple rows sow at 30 cm apart.  

These seedlings are sensitive to frost. Any signs of frost, protect the plants with garden fleece.

Lavender thrives best planted in dry, humus rich soil, in a sunny spot. The lavender needs a minimum planting distance of 35 cm apart (as they can grow to a maximum width of 50 cm per plant). This provides enough space to create beautiful hedging.

Lavender combined with roses

Lavender is the sort of shrub that will grow to 1.5 metres if you never prune it! For maximum flowering you need to cut back sharply every 2-3 years. This keeps the plant alive and strong. Lavendula angustifolia is also hardy.

Care+

Water more often during dry periods. Keep the plot weed-free and it will help the lavender plants to thrive well. They make few demands - but they do not like wet feet. They even do well in rather poor soil. From June (2nd year) they will bloom until the frost.

With proper maintenance of the lavender bush you will always enjoy a flourishing, beautiful compact shrub. Prune the shrub twice a year. In the spring after the winter, between mid-March and early April - prune back to 10 to 15 cm above the ground.

Prune after flowering

The second pruning should take place after the flowering period, between August and October. During this pruning, remove the faded flowers by cutting them off. The branches can also be trimmed.


Harvesting

Although most people grow lavender for the show of flowers - both the flowers and the leaves can be eaten. Harvest lavender during the flowering period by cutting off the florets. If using them in the kitchen use them as fresh as possible.

Lavender is also stunning used in a dry bouquet! They are best harvested late afternoon. Cut the stems before the flowers open. Make small bunches of lavender and tie them together. Dry the lavender off in a dry, well-ventilated place.

Extra+

The best time to start pruning is when the plants are still young. As they mature they can be pruned back by 1/3rd. Prune at least once a year, but never cut back into old wood. For maximum flowering you need to cut back sharply every 2-3 years. This keeps the plant alive and strong. Lavendula angustifolia is also hardy.

Lavender has long been used in the manufacture of perfume and fragrances.
Lavender is a plant that attracts bees and also has medicinal benefits - it has soothing and antiseptic properties. Lavender honey is a must to try it is delicious!
