Lavender - Provence Blue
This deep blue flower can be used for dry bouquets if cut at an early stage. It is ideal for use as border edging, pot plants, cut flowers or drying. It grows to a height and spread of 50cm.
Place the seeds in the fridge for three days prior to sowing to break the dormancy. Sow in February at 18-24C to obtain flowers in same year. Sow on top surface of compost, and do not cover the seed. As soon as they are large enough to handle, prick out into 7.5cm pots. Transplant after 6 weeks to the growing site or, if before April, await milder weather before planting out.
