Vera Lavender Germination:
Refrigerate the seeds for a
month before planting. Plant them just below the surface in soil that
drains well, and keep them at a temperature of 60-64 degrees F. Keep the
soil moist with a spray bottle to prevent over watering, and shield
them from the hottest sun. Germination may take up to a month, and
plants will reach a suitable size for transplanting in about 6 months;
transplanting can take place either in late spring or fall. Transplant
them to bigger pots as carefully as possible to avoid disturbing the
roots. Lavender plants prefer full sun and soil that drains well, even
rocky or sandy soil. Plant them 24-36" apart in rows 30-36" apart to
allow enough space for growth. With proper handling, lavender can grow
in containers; it also makes an excellent hedge that attracts birds,
bees, and butterflies and repels deer and rabbits.
