Description:
English lavender is botanically known as Lavandula angustifolia. Rather than being from England, it is actually from the Mediterranean. Due to its ability to thrive in the English climate, this lavender is known as English lavender. Also known as a true lavender, English lavender is frequently planted commercially as a source of lavender oil for making perfume and is also a favorite type of lavender for use in the kitchen.


Medicinal Uses:
Used to cure everything from headaches to sunburns, the soothing scent of its oil relaxes the mind, while collagen regenerating agents in the plant renew your skin.


Growing Instructions:
Lavender seeds are best started indoors, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost after a 3 week cold stratification. Start in peat pots, sowing 3 to 5 seeds per pot, at a shallow depth of 1/16” under topsoil. The seeds will require a bit of direct light to properly germinate, so try not to bury them deeper than the recommended depth. Transplant small pots into larger containers if necessary, or transplant directly into the garden, when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Lavender herbs will require an area of full sunlight for the majority of the day. Temperatures of at least 70F are recommended. A light soil that contains a small amount of gravel will best suit your Lavender plants, as they will need a well draining medium. They are fond of slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soils, with a pH of 6.5 to 8.0. Water the seeds daily with a spray bottle or mist setting, until germination has successfully occurred. Lavender seeds will typically germinate within 7 to 21 days after sowing. This strain will produce 30 inch plants, forming a compact, bush like growth habit. The plants can be spaced about 12 to 18 inches apart from one another.
