Lavender Seeds: of all the scores of different lavenders, this one is arguably the most popular. A delicate and versatile variety, lavender is especially cherished for its elegant appearance and lovely scent. This lavender is fast-growing, long-blooming, and very hardy. It can even be used to flavor select desserts like sorbet and ice cream!
We love the lavender in our garden. It is a beautiful addition.
The deer also love to pull the plants up if they get a chance.
Fill a 3-inch-deep seedling tray with the soil-less potting mix, leaving 1 inch of space at the top. Sprinkle a light layer of lavender seed across the surface of the mix. Cover the seeds with a scant layer of sharp sand to hold them in place without blocking the light.
Cover the seedling tray with plastic wrap or a propagation dome. Lift the cover every two days to mist the lavender seeds with a spray bottle or plant mister. Mist the seeds only when the soil feels dry just beneath the surface.
Place the seedling tray outdoors in a cold, shaded spot for three to five weeks after sowing them. Move the seedling tray to a well-lighted place where temperatures stay above 60 degrees Fahrenheit at all times following the cold stratification period.
Watch for germination in two to eight weeks. Transplant the lavender seedlings as they appear into 4-inch pots filled with a mix of equal parts sharp sand and sterile potting soil.
Happy Planting !!
Leave your worries in the dirt as you pull the weeds.
