Growing Lavender Munstead From Seed In 4 Simple Steps
#1 | Place your seeds in a damp (not dripping) paper-towel. Place the seeds and paper-towel into a plastic baggie and put them in your refrigerator. Check the moisture levels daily. Your Vera Lavender seeds need to stratify for 30-45 days to break dormancy.
# 2 | Fill a shallow tray with a light and average potting soil/sand mixture. It can take one to three months for lavender seeds to germinate, so be patient. Also, be prepared to germinate them indoors.
# 2 | Find a warm spot. Lavender seeds need warm temperatures to germinate (between 65 and 70 degrees F). If you don’t have a warm spot or a greenhouse, use a heat mat to keep your seeds warm.
# 3 | Press your lavender seeds lightly into your soil and keep them moist but not overly wet.
# 4 | Lavender seeds can take as long as 3 months to germinate, although sometimes they’ll sprout in as little as 14 days
# 4 | Transfer seedlings to 2-inch-wide pots when seedlings have sprouted several sets of leaves. Lavender is a slow grower and may take three to six months to reach transplanting size.
