Simply so, how long do Lavender plug plants take to grow?
Cover the 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 it 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.
Secondly, is Lavender a sun or shade plant? Most species of lavender will grow in partial shade, but Lavandula latifolia, "Spike Lavender," is an exception. It should be planted in a location with full sun exposure and well-drained soil. It may not grow at all if planted in the shade.
Beside this, how can I make lavender grow faster?
“Lavender is actually easy to grow, if you follow some guidelines.” Here are Debbie's tips for successful growing:
- Give the plants 6 hours or more of full sun each day.
- Apply very little water.
- Grow in well-drained areas or raised beds.
- If your soil is sandy, mix in some gravel to improve drainage.
Does lavender spread easily?
Lavender is a small shrub that usually grows 20 to 24 inches tall and wide. The height includes the flower stalks, so when not in bloom, the foliage may be only a foot tall. The plant does not spread as thyme, oregano, and other herbs tend to.
