Although lavender can be started from seed, it takes quite some time as germination can take as long as many months to grow and thrive.

A much easier way is to propagate lavender is by cuttings, which provides a mature plant much earlier.

I like instant gratification and I just buy them from my local nursery.

The flowering stems can be harvested while in bloom or snipped off after the flowers fade to keep the plant neat and tidy.

Leave the foliage over the winter to protect the new growth from frosts, then in the spring trim the plants fairly hard to prevent them from becoming leggy and bare at the base.

It’s important not to cut back into old wood, as it won’t regrow from this.

Learn how to make your garden bloom this summer with the perfect lavender!

This guide will help you get started harvesting and adding some beautiful color to your garden.

Harvesting and drying lavender is simple – simply snip off the stems just before the flowers open and when you’ve gathered enough for your needs, tie the stems together and hang them up to dry somewhere sheltered.

After a few weeks the flowers will have dried fully, and can be shaken gently from the stems into a container.

Store them in a lidded jar somewhere cool and dark, or pop them straight into a sachet to keep towels, sheets or clothes smelling sweet and to repel moths.

If you suffer from insomnia, try inserting the sachets into a pillow so the calming scent can help you drift off to a restful slumber.

Although edible, lavender is little used in recipes.

It’s occasionally included as a constituent of Herbes de Provence mixes, and leaves can be chopped and added sparingly to some sauces – if you have any great lavender recipes, feel free to share them in the comments below.

I have some fun projects using lavender coming soon, be sure to check back.

Lavender can be used to deter both deer and mosquitoes.

Simply plant lavender around your flower beds and near your outdoor entertaining spaces.
