(Lavandula vera) Famous for fragrance, the lavender-colored blossoms are used in potpourris, soaps, etc. A great old-time cottage garden plant.
 

Here are some germination tips passed on from a customer:

1. Pour the seeds into a jar, and add about two tablespoons of water.

2. Put the lid on the jar, and put in the refrigerator for six weeks.

3. Remove the seeds from the jar - pour out onto a paper towel.

4. Plant seeds in seed starter. I use peat. It is not easy to separate seeds, so it is OK if there are several seeds planted together - see Step 6 below.

5. Keep moist. Seeds will germinate in - yes - a week.

6. About a month after germination, seedlings can be separated, and transferred to individual cells or small pots.

Review:

After reading other reviews about refrigerating seeds before planting, I am quite surprised as I have never does this with lavender seeds and every time they have sprouted within a week of planting. These seeds were no exception. As soon as I received the packet, I simply scattered them across the seed tray, kept moist, and they sprouted within a week just like anything else. Lots and lots of seedlings! I have had no need to stratify. It seems a waste of time to me since they have always sprouted so quickly.

I thought this would be difficult to germinate, but followed everyone’s advice to put seeds in ‘fridge for a couple weeks and they germinated right away. I have a lot ot cute little lavender sprouts. So happy.

Review:

I think I’ve found the trick to get these to germinate! I followed the instructions, but added my own twist. Instead of keeping the seeds in the fridge for 6 weeks, I left them in for 8. I then prepared my peat pellets by pouring boiling water over them. When the peat was still warm (but not hot), I planted the seeds, covering very slightly. I then watered them using a drop of superthrive. I set the pellets in a Nanodome, making sure to use a heat mat. I saw germination in... yes... A DAY. After a few days I brought them a few inches from the light. I haven’t put them outside yet. I hope they’ll continue to perform!

Followed the instructions carefully and was proud to say I succeeded! Very happy with this beautiful plant.. not getting much of any flowers but maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Review:

I tried so hard to germinate some of these indoors last spring. Did everything listed here and I just could not get the seeds to sprout. Finally at the end of May, I scattered the remainder in a half barrel full of soil that was sitting unused. Go figure, after about a month of being completely ignored, they came up and grew like wildfire. I even transplanted the bigger plants into the garden last fall. I'll definitely go with the benign neglect germination process again next year!
