Lavender (Lavandula) is a wonderful perennial flower that attracts butterflies, bees, and other pollinators to your garden.
Package list: Lavender 200 Seeds
To grow lavender successfully it needs well-drained soil and full sun.
In arid climates lavender grows well as a perennial, but in humid climates it is often grown as an annual.
Lavender can be sown indoors in late winter or outdoors in early spring or late fall.
Some gardeners suggest cold-stratifying lavender seeds by placing them in moist soil in a cold greenhouse or refrigerator for two to seven weeks before moving them onto heat.
How To Plant Lavender Seeds
1. Choose a sterile soil mix intended for seed starting.
Moisten the soil with a little water, and then fill a seed-starting tray with the damp soil mix.
2. Sow lavender seeds on top of the soil and do not cover them.
3. Add a clear dome greenhouse lid to the seed-starting tray to prevent drying out. Be sure that the lid has ventilation holes, and lift it once or twice a day to refresh the air.
4. Keep the soil lightly damp. Mist often and check the soil regularly. Once your seeds have begun to sprout, continue bottom watering to keep the soil moderately damp, never wet.
5. The germination time vary, depending on the temperature.
Lavender seeds can take from 14 to 30 days to germinate.
6. Help the germination process by placing seed trays in a warm spot—70 degrees F is an ideal temperature.
7. Lavender seedlings are ready to transplant when they have at least two sets of true leaves.
8. Space the plants 12 inches apart in full sun in a neutral to alkaline, light, rich, sandy, well-drained soil. Drainage is critical for Lavender's success.
Outdoors, scatter the seeds onto the soil and then cover with a row protector or very light sprinkling of soil.
