100 days first flower
HEIRLOOM Deliciously medicinal with timeless beauty, lavender is a hardy perennial you’ll enjoy for years and generations to come. Beneficial pollinators revel in lavender as much as humans! Full sun and well-drained soil will surround you with lavender abundance.
Lavender may be propagated by seed, cutting and root and be forewarned: lavender is challenging to start, often taking 20+ days to germinate. Once established, lavender will carry on for years with relatively little effort. At Fruition, we sow lavender indoors in mini soil blocks on heat mats two months before final frost, transplanting out after final frost with one foot between plants.
