Lavender is an old world ornamental related to mint, its flowers are used in salads, soups, teas as well as potpourri and sachets. Perennial in zones 5-9.
Growing information: Lavender takes its time germinating, so start indoors 6-12 weeks before the last frost. Sow seeds in a fine seed starting mixture or fine vermiculite with a light layer of soil on top. Keep on a heating mat or in a warm location and keep moist. Transplant seedlings once the soil warms, in a location with full sun and good drainage. Does not do well in locations that are overly moist. Growth isn't impressive the first year. In colder climates, bring indoors during winter.
