The Kew Pollinators range of seeds from Thompson and Morgan has been specially created alongside the experts at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to attract and support a wide range of pollinators, including bees, butterflies and beetles, as well as a number of other important pollinating insects. Helping these pollinators to thrive is hugely important for our eco-system as a whole and these seeds, in their striking packaging inspired by artwork from the Kew archives, will help to create the environment which they need to thrive, with varieties chosen to help a wide range of pollinating insects, including some night flowering plants to help moths which also play an important part in our gardens.Lavender ‘Munstead’ is a well-respected English Lavender, boasting a profusion of dark purple flower spikes in late summer. The nectar-rich blooms are constantly busy with the hum of pollinating insects, but spare a few to be cut and dried, so you can enjoy their fragrance all year round. The bushy, aromatic foliage is perfect for creating a low hedge beside a path or adding some fragrance to sunny borders. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 60cm (24").

1 packet (110 lavender seeds) (KB7568)
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 lavenders 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.
