English Lavender is one of the best-known of the traditional aromatic herbs. Valued for its small lavender flowers as well as for its fragrant gray leaves, this hardy, dwarf shrub has been grown and used in Europe since at least the 12th century. Jefferson listed it for planting in the Monticello gardens in 1794. The flowers attract bees and butterflies, while the plant is deer and drought tolerant.
Sow seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost date at 68 degrees F. Transplant to 3” pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and plant outdoors in well-drained soil after last frost. Approximately 120 seeds per packet.
