Your Sustainable Shift™ seed paper is embedded with lavender seeds that will grow just about anywhere in the United States.
You should always consider your climate and the conditions as you would any other planted seed.
For best results, plant in a warm, dry area that receives full sunlight.
Lavender is a great addition to any garden and helps attract pollinators!
Set up your planter. It should be a small pot with good drainage. Place in a warm, sunny area, or under a grow light.
Fill to 1/2-inch from the top with loose soil or vermiculite.
TIP: Place a plate under your planter to catch excess drainage.
A, FOR BEST RESULTS: Thoroughly moisten the lavender seed paper and place in a clear zip-top bag. Tape to a window that receives full sunlight.
or B: Thoroughly moisten the lavender seed paper and place in your planter, 1/4-inch deep in loose soil or vermiculite in a warm, dry area inside.
Keep moist, but not too wet, watering daily for the first three weeks or until seeds germinate.
If you have done option A, move the germinated seed paper into your planter. The paper will recycle naturally into the soil as the seedlings grow.
TIP: Be patient and set an alarm reminder to water your lavender. Lavender can be a challenge to grow, but is so worth the work and wait!
Transplant outside once plant has matured, after frost.
Lightly water daily, tend to them with love, and watch them grow!
Check on your lavender daily to ensure that it is getting enough sun, and just the right mount of water.
Soil should feel slightly damp to the touch - not dry and crumbly, not wet and muddy.
Always consider your climate and the conditions as you would any other planted seed.
Lavender is a great addition to any garden and helps attract pollinators and keep our local bee populations happy!
