Italian Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is a popular herb that is prized for its fragrant blooms and soothing aroma. This beautiful plant is a must-have for any herb or flower garden. Growing Italian Lavender from seed is easy and rewarding, as long as you give it the proper care and conditions.
The seeds of Italian Lavender are small, so it's best to start them indoors in a tray or pot filled with a high-quality seed-starting mix. Sow the seeds on the surface of the soil and gently press them into place, then cover with a light layer of soil. Keep the soil moist and warm, and provide bright, indirect light until the seedlings have emerged. Once they are big enough, transplant them into larger pots or into your garden bed.
Italian Lavender prefers full sun and well-draining soil. When planting in the garden, space the seedlings about 12-18 inches apart and water regularly. To keep the plants healthy and promote new growth, be sure to cut back the stems of spent blooms regularly.
Once established, Italian Lavender is a low-maintenance plant that will reward you with beautiful blooms year after year. Its fragrant flowers and soft grey-green leaves are a perfect addition to any garden, and make a lovely addition to floral arrangements and sachets.
