Lavender can also be used for highly nutritious herbal tea, turned into a fragrant essential oil, for the cleaning and dressing of wounds, and a multitude of other uses. A must have for any homeowner.
Planting: In tropical climate the best time to start is winter, as the sun is more intense in summer and afterwards it rains, which increases the humidity level and makes it intolerable for the plant to thrive. That is why winter is the best month to plant lavender in tropics. Use shallow seed trays and just barely cover the seeds with soil. Use a light soil or a vermiculite blend. Keep the seeds moist but not overly wet. A sunny spot is a great location to keep the soil from getting too wet and to add warmth. Your lavender seedlings will be ready to transplant once they have several leaves per plant. Your first year of growth will not be impressive, but by year two, expect to have large, blooming lavender. Moderate watering. In temperate climates start the seeds early spring, starting the seeds indoors 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost date and transplanting outdoors after the danger of last frost is gone, or transfer to a pot, at least 3 inches (7.5 cm) large. Requires a temperature of 18-21C to germinate. One plant per pot. Matures 70-90 days.
