Lavender kick off February 25, 2010

Filed under: Lavender,What's sprouting — Bibi @ 5:36 pm

I accidentally kicked off the lid of the lavender flat on the kitchen floor. And to my surprise, almost all the lavender seeds have sprouted and are now 1.5 inch tall! In one week!
We do have floor heating so that may have helped…
It’s way to cold to put them outside, I will keep an eye on them and when they feel a little stronger I’ll thin them and re-pot them.
I’ve read that you get the best fragrance when you grow them in poor sandy soil. I bet they do need their nutrients now but once the garden is laid out, and I can plant them, I think I will mix in sand and refrain from fertilizing.
