Lavender, Czech (Lavandula angustifolia krajova), packet of 50 seeds, organic

$3.95

Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)

Hardy to Zones 5 to 9

(Country Lavender, Czech Lavender) Beautiful blue-flowered, long-lived cultivar from Northern Europe.  High essential oil content, and the fragrance has a mellow quality that is nonetheless pervasive.  Plant is very cold tolerant.  Flowers to 3 feet high.  Plants prefer full sun and a dry to mesic, well-drained soil.  Commonly grown in open fields or as landscape plants, mellowing the corners and curbs between buildings, driveways and sidewalks.  They are tough to the sun, and should be trimmed back in the fall to prevent large amounts of snow from accumulating on them.  Seed is very hard and will benefit from a brisk scarification on fine sandpaper, followed by sowing on sandy soil in the light, kept moist and cool until germination, which can take 4 to 6 weeks. Once the seedlings attain a healthy size, transplant them to quarts, grow them on that way for some weeks, with a sharp eye out for snails and slugs, then transplant again up to gallons, always freeing the roots at transplant and using a rich but fast draining mix.  Plant 2 to 3 feet apart

50 seeds per packet, Certified Organically Grown

    Hey how is this certified organically? How/where is this grown? Who produces these seeds and in what country? Those would be great things to have in the description.

      There’s a story behind every seed. My ancestry is Czech, so the Czech lavender is special to me, and was accessed long ago from Czech Republic. The nomer “krajova” means “Country,” so “Country Lavender” as in lavender from the country, not the city. It grows well here and exhibits great frost-tolerance and has a deeply satisfying fragrance. It is always a fast germinator for me, also. r
