Today, charity shopping with friends, I inevitably found lots of things I hadn’t been intending to buy. However, a £1 book which might tell me something useful about the hardy perennials I have wasn’t an object I felt I could pass up.
I’ve yet to read the book in detail but without even trying, I amazed that I actually have a few that are mentioned: primroses, hostas and pulmonaria. Ideally, I would like more, so that there are flowers of some sort throughout the year.
Anyway, I’m not sure if lavender is considered a hardy perennial. It’s not mentioned in the book. However, the ones I sowed in the spring must certainly come from good seeds. Not only did they germinate within days but now they are flowering.
The lavender really needs to be outside in the herb garden but, as mentioned in a previous post, the carrots where it is intended to go are not ready yet. Still, I’m not averse to flowers in the house.
