What to do with the Lavender seedlings?
I received my lavender 'plants' from the June issue of 'Gardeners' World' only at the end of July. Great offer but had no idea they would be so tiny - 36 5cm seedlings packed in tiny root containers and a thin, transparent case for posting. It says 'pot on'. I thought from June when I ordered them, I should be able to plant them out in my garden for this year! But do I really have to put each one in a pot and tend it until it is big enough to put in the ground? Will they flower this year? How to keep them through the winter? - lavender in my experience is quite tender and most of my others died. Would it be better to find an inside space until next year? Oh dear, please help!
