Lavender 'Ellagance Pink' / Lavandula angustifolia / Dwarf English Lavender / Seeds

A pink variety of dwarf English Lavender with good fragrance and unusual pale pink flowers.  This variety has flowers on tall stems above well branched bushy plants 20-30cm in height. It has a long flowering period from the end of May to August.  This is a great plant for most gardens, from the herb garden to low hedging along paths, to pots and borders.


Lavender ‘Ellagance Snow’ thrives best in a warm sunny spot and in well-drained soil.  It attracts many pollinating insects.

 

Pack of 30 Tuned seeds.  These are Tuned Seeds, and do not need the chilling normally needed for this species.  Sow in February to April for first year flowers.  Or sow anytime for next year flowering.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Sow

Sow February to April for first year flowering,otherwise anytime.  Sow on the surface of moist seed compost and cover lightly with compost.  Keep at 18-20°C and germination takes 1-2 weeks.  Transplant seedlings into pots when they are big enough to handle.  Pinch out the growing tips of seedlings once they are established, to encourage bushier growth.  Protect summer/autumn sown plants over the winter in a greenhouse or cold frame, and plant out in late spring.

Grow Plants need little care once established.  Trim back plants after flowering, removing the current year’s growth.  Do not cutback too hard into the woody parts of the plant, as stems may not regrow.  Plants are not generally troubled by pests and diseases.  Semi-ripe cuttings take very easily in summer.
