Stunning French Lavender spotted at the garden centre last saturday
I love the idea of growing lavender at home, so many uses and love the stunning purple colour. I hope to use to make homemade pop as a treat , lavender lemonade, baked goods and also for making soaps. When I researched the type of lavender seeds I purchased I found out they are not edible, despite them claiming to be on the packet 😦 If anyone has any advice reading this would be great to hear. Will purchase a packet of edible lavender to grow soon!
My Munstead strain Seeds for planting
Seedling tray filled with seed compost
Small black lavender seeds
Lavender sowed and covered with 0.5cm of compost as per packet instructions, covered with propagator lid and popped on the window sill. Will sit there cosy for 21-49 days when hope to see some seelings appear.
So happy to share with you this next photo! A progress of my growing so far in 2014!
Fingers crossed my lettuce, chill, garlic, radish and now lavender continue to grow! Thank you for everyone on twitter who has provided feedback and helped with my aim to learn to grow. If anyone is thinking of growing its really easy and would love to hear your adventures! xxxxxxxxx
