Agastache aurantiaca 'Lavender Martini' / Hyssop / Seeds

A newer variety of scented and compact Hyssop with pale lavender, orange and pink flowers from June to the first frost.  Plants are well branched, growing to a height of 25 – 30cm.  The leaves and flowers have an attractive anise-like scent.  They attract bees and pollinators into the garden and are good cut flowers.  Plants are good in containers as well as borders.


Agastache ‘Lavender Martini’ grows best in full sun to part shade and well-drained soil.  The plants look particularly good in herb,gravel and Mediterranean gardens. 

 

Pack of approx 40 small seeds.  Sow in spring if growing as an annual and for first year flowers.  Sow into autumn if you have a greenhouse to protect the plants over winter.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Conditions  Plant out in full sun to part shade and well-drained soil
Sow Sow anytime, typically in spring.  Sow in a tray of seed compost, with a very light covering of compost or vermiculite.  Do not exclude light, which helps germination.  Keep at 18-20°C and germination takes 1-3 weeks.  Grow on seedlings at a cool 15 degrees Celcius to keep the plants compact. Pot on when seedlings are big enough to handle and plant out after the last frost into sun or part shade and well-drained soil.  
Grow Spring sown plants flower in the first year.  Remove spent flower stalks to encourage more flowering.  Remove the plants in early spring and start sowing again.  Or in warmer gardens, the plants will survive winter in well drained soil– cut back the plants in early spring and plants grow and flower on new stems in the summer.   Protect young shoots from hard frosts in spring.
