Lavender is best grown over winter in pots and then transplanted into your garden after the last frost, but bewarned they do require a bit a patience as they can germinate in a couple of weeks or couple of months. You can sow them directly into your garden but results will not be as good as starting early in pots.

Direct Seed: If in zones 6-7 you can direct seed these into your garden in fall after your last frost. Work your enriched garden bed 6" deep and scatter seeds on the surface as they need light to germinate. Top with a light dusting of peat. In zones 8-9 you will have to cold treat your seeds before seeding. Take your packet of seeds and mix with 1/2 cup of peat moss inside a zip loc baggie. Add 1/4 cup of water and mix until the peat is damp and place the sealed baggie in your refrigerator for 60 days. After 60 days take out of the refrigerator and let dry before sprinkling the contents of the baggie in your garden area.

In Pots: Seeds require cold treatment to germinate prior to seeding indoors (seed cold treat instructions above). After cold treatment use a non soil potting mix made of 1 part sand and 1 part peat or a sterilized seed potting mixture. Sprinkle 5-8 seeds in each pot, or use a tray and sow them in rows 3" apart, and press into soil. Cover lightly with sand or vermiculite as they need light to germinate. Don't oversaturate and water from the bottom of your pot. We cover our trays or pots with plastic wrap until the seeds start to germinate (don't let the seedlings touch the plastic wrap). They are slow to germinate, and while germinating the need lighting but dislike strong direct natural sunlight. Keep you soil temperature around 70 degrees which in winter might require the use of a heating mat.

Once plants get their second set of leaves you can add a mild fertilizer to their water. In spring, after your last frost, transplant into your garden. Once in the garden for one year cut back in the very early spring to encourage bushy growth. If you seeds fail to germinate when starting in pots don't give up on them. In spring prepare your garden area and scatter your potting/seed mixture on the surface and give them until the following fall.
