My French lavender from seeds

BerkleyBerkley Posts: 428
I am very pleased with these little plants, grown from "freebie" seeds .... I understand I can either put them out in to the garden this Autumn (with cloche protection) or overwinter them inside. I would like to keep them in my garage (near a large window) but am wondering how often I will need to water them before I put them out in the garden next Spring. They are in a free-draining compost of multi purpose, vermiculite and sand. Will I need to pot them on?

    French Lavender are more tender than the standard angustifolia types, so I would overwinter in a cold frame to give them more protection.  They need to be damp, but not sodden overwinter.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
  • Well done Berkley. I tried to grow lavender from seed once but nothing happened 😫
