Germinating the Seeds

If you decide to start growing lavender seed, germinating them is the first thing you need to do. We listed down simple steps on how to germinate the lavender seeds.

  • 6-12 weeks before the heat.It is best to start germinating the seeds before the warm season. It is said that growing them indoors is best because it takes time for them to germinate and the heat outside can cause them to die.
  • Cold Stratifying. Using 2 wet paper towels, place the seeds in between them. Put it in a sealed plastic and refrigerate for at least 3 weeks.
  • Transfer to container. Use a container to transfer the seeds when they’re ready. Just sprinkle the seeds on top of the soil.
  • Cover the seeds. Using a potting mix, gently cover the seeds with 1/8 inch. In this case, they will still get sunlight which is needed in the germination process. Make sure to keep them in a warm space with good air circulation around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Once they sprouted, placing them under full sun is needed.
  • Water.Do not forget that it is important to water the seeds. Keep it damp but never soggy. By doing so, they’ll have enough protection to any type of fungi.

Transplanting the Seeds Safely
