They prefer full sun & a dry to mesic, well-drained soil. Commonly grown in open fields or as landscape plants, mellowing the corners & curbs between buildings, driveways & sidewalks. When you grow lavender from seed, it takes a year for them to bloom to their full potential. They can flower lightly the first year, & you may get a few buds from them. Then they should come into full bloom by their second season, giving you tons of delicious smelling flowers to enjoy. PLANTING LAVENDER SEEDS: Successfully planting lavender seeds requires some special tricks. These cold hardy seeds need a bit of extra help in order to germinate. But don't worry, it's easier than you think. Seed is very hard & will benefit from a brisk scarification with fine sandpaper, followed by sowing on sandy soil in the light, kept moist & cool until germination, which can take 4 to 6 weeks. Once the seedlings gain a healthy size, transplant them to pots or outdoors. Space plants 3 to 4 feet apart. WHEN TO START LAVENDER SEEDS Plant lavender seeds indoors 10-12 weeks before your average last frost date. If you want to direct sow them, you should do that in very early spring, as soon as the ground is workable. You could also try planting them in your garden in late fall, so they will sprout in the spring. Or winter sow them as soon as the temps stay below freezing in your area. in order to germinate, lavender seeds need a period of cool temperatures called "cold stratification". If you skip this step, you may still have success. But most likely, you'll see a very low germination rate. The easiest way to cold stratify lavender seeds is to place them in moist soil, then put them into the refrigerator for 3-6 weeks before planting. Press seeds into soil surface & keep evenly moist until germination, which is rapid. After seedlings attain their second set of true leaves, prick out into pots & grow on until the plants are large enough to transplant to the garden. Plant 2 feet apart.
