Germination: Refrigerate the seeds for 4-6 weeks before planting. Sow the seeds in soil that is between 72 and 78 degrees, 1/8 of an inch deep or barely covered, in a bright or sunny spot, keep moist until germination, which will take place 14-21 days after sowing. As soon as the first seedlings emerge, move to dappled shade, not full shade, and avoid direct sunlight. This slow growing starter will reach a suitable size for transplanting in about 6 months; transplanting can take place either in late spring or fall. Once established, lavender plants prefer full sun and soil that drains well, even rocky or sandy soil. Plant them 2-3ft apart in rows 2-3ft apart to allow enough space for growth.
