Lavender, Munstead (Lavandula angustifolia) packet of 100 seeds, organic

Lavandula angustifolia var. munstead
This is a Northern-hardy dwarf strain of English Lavender that bears thick racemes of blue flowers.  The plant is preferred by landscapers because of its compact form, cold-hardiness and great longevity.Plants prefer full sun and a dry to mesic, well-drained soil.  Commonly grown in open fields or as landscape plants, mellowing the corners and curbs between buildings, driveways and sidewalks.  They are tough to the sun but not particularly cold hardy, and should be trimmed back in the fall to prevent large amounts of snow from accumulating on them.  Gardeners in northern climes will want to pot them up and bring them in for the winter.   Seed is very hard and will benefit from a brisk sandpaper stratification, followed by sowing on sandy soil in the light, kept moist and cool until germination, which can take 4 to 6 weeks.  Seedlings demonstrating healthy color that grow fast indicate a soil of proper porosity, while seedlings that languish and yellow are suffering from cold and poor drainage.  Once the seedlings gain a healthy size, transplant them to quarts, grow them on that way for some weeks, with a sharp eye out for snails and slugs, then transplant again up to gallons, always freeing the roots at transplant and using a rich but fast draining mix.  Harvest the flowers in early flowering stage, when the calyces are swollen but prior to the die off of the corola and subsequent shift of resources to seed production. Dry the flowering spikes in the shade, turning gently from time to time, until the stems snap when bent.  At this time the plant may be rubbed on a screen and all stem removed from the dried lavender flowers.  Potent.
