How to Grow Lavender from Seed
Full lighting
2-3 week cold-stratification
Begin more starts than you’ll use
Lavender seeds are especially small, nearly microscopic, and can be notorious for their slower 14-28 day germination as well as having a naturally lower germination rate.

Like many other herbs and wildflowers, lavender seeds experience a significant increase in germination if sown in the fall to lie dormant through winter or stored in a freezer for about 2-3 weeks prior to spring sowing.

This process of cold-stratification simulates the seeds’ natural habitat and conditions, helping to ensure thorough germination as if the plant had naturally reseeded itself. Lavender seeds are slow to germinate and should be cold-stratified as early as 10-12 weeks prior to outdoor transplanting.

After a 2-3 week cold-stratification, lavender seeds are best started indoors using  loose potting soil and a bright grow light, allowing full lighting for thorough germination.

Lightly press seeds into soil without covering to allow lavender full lighting to properly warm and dry out. Seedlings should reach about 4-5” tall when ready to transplant.
