Growing Lavender Seeds in Your Garden

  • Low-maintenance and tolerant to drought
  • Thrives in poor to moderately fertile soil
  • Lavender is an edible herb that has many healing properties

Lavender plant seeds will grow into a beautiful shrub that flowers with fragrant blooms that pollinators adore. It is respected for the soothing properties of its oils. This makes lavender a staple in aromatherapy and natural wellness. Originating from the Mediterranean, it has adapted to many climates, and can successfully be grown in USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9.


Lavender seeds should be sown in well-draining soil. Find a spot that receives plenty of sunlight. Because of their slow germination rate, starting indoors can be beneficial. Sow the seeds on the surface of a seed-starting mix and lightly press them into the soil. Keep the soil slightly moist but not waterlogged until germination. Be patient, as germination can take 2 to 4 weeks. Seedlings should be gradually adapted to outdoor conditions before transplanting for stronger plants.


Once lavender plants are established, they don’t require much care. Preferring dry conditions, these Mediterranean herbs are tolerant to drought. Regular pruning after flowering is a good practice to encourage bushy growth. No fertilization is needed; however, lavender benefits from the occasional addition of lime for soil alkalinity. Harvest lavender in the morning at the peak of its bloom for the highest aromatic oil concentration. The fragrant flowers are used for drying, cooking, or essential oil extraction. The scent of lavender, fresh or dried, adds tranquility to homes and gardens alike.
