Lavandula angustifolia ‘Munstead’

EXCLUSIVE - Our easy to grow Munstead has the perfume of authentic English lavender – a clear, sweet fragrance without medicinal overtones. The semi-dwarf plants grow into 1 1/2 to 2 foot, silvery-green mounds with plump lavender blue flower spikes. Use these plants in landscape borders for a wave of soft color in early summer. Their grey-green foliage and aromatic blooms will charm your senses and attract a flotilla of summer butterflies.

BEST TO PLANT INDOORS

In early spring, sow lavender seeds in a container of seed starting mix, cover very lightly and keep at 60-70°F (16-21°C). Keep container moist but not soggy until seedlings slowly emerge over 14 to 28 days, providing a good light source. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, transplant into individual 4 inch pots. Plant outside in a well-drained sunny spot when plants are 2 to 3 inches tall after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions.

TO START IN THE GARDEN

Sow directly into a well-worked, finely textured garden bed in full sun when weather is warm and settled. Cover very lightly. Lavender germinates slowly and unevenly; keep seed bed evenly moist and well weeded.

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 12 to 18 inches apart when large enough to handle.

GROWING NOTES

Given excellent drainage, this hardy lavender is perennial to zone 5. Plants flower lightly the first season and come into full bloom by their second summer. After blooming season, prune and shape the plants while cutting off spent flower stalks. Bonemeal is a good soil amendment for lavender.
