The Q&A Archives: Germinating Lavender Seeds

Question: I've purchased the Lavender Lady seeds (twice now) and am having trouble getting them to sprout. I'm using indoor plant potting soil in a mini greenhouse. I apply water as required to keep the seeds moist. I'm using the same method for basil, thyme, and oregano. They are doing well. What should I do to get the lavender to sprout?

Answer: To get lavender to germinate, plant the seeds in a container with moist soilless potting mix and place it in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 weeks. After this period, place it in the warm, 70F room and keep the soil moist. They should germinate in 15-20 days. I hope this helps.
