Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews

A delightful dwarf lavender flowering in its first year from an early sowing! Compact, rounded plants quickly become smothered with masses of highly fragrant, deep purple lavender flowers from mid-summer onwards, which are highly attractive to bees. With impressive garden performance, Lavender 'Mini Blue' is ideal for growing in containers or used as a neat evergreen edging to beds and borders. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 35cm (14").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sowing Months Flowering Months
Water regularly throughout summer until lavender plants are fully established. Once established, they are reasonably drought tolerant. Immediately after flowering, prune English lavender back to within 2cm (1") of the previous year's growth to maintain a compact, well shaped plant. Culinary idea: Make delicious lavender sugar or lavender and mint jelly from the freshly picked flowers.

Sow Lavender seeds from February to July on the surface of moist seed compost and cover seeds with a sprinkling of vermiculite or finely sieved compost. Place the seed tray in a propagator at 21-25°C (70-75°F) or seal inside a clear polythene bag until germination, which can be up to 21 days. Keep the compost damp but not wet and do not exclude light as this helps germination.


When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow lavender plants on in cooler conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions over 7 – 10 days before planting outdoors. Plant dwarf lavenders at a distance of 25cm (10") apart on any light, well drained soil in full sun. Alternatively grow English Lavender in patio containers using soil-based compost such as John Innes No.3. Lavenders dislike wet ground, particularly during winter. Improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting. Overwinter late summer sowings in a cold frame and plant out the following spring.
