It is believed that the best time of sowing seeds of lavender – October. Sow lavender seeds to a depth of 3-4 mm (not more than 0.5 cm). Lightly seal the soil and water (abundant watering is not needed). With the onset of cold weather crops, covers with snow. Shoots can appear next year in late may and early June. Do not rush to despair ("nothing comes up!") to dig land with seeds of lavender.
If you do not have time to plant lavender in autumn, don't worry – make a sowing in may or early June of next year. However, before the spring sowing soak the seeds in the fridge (in a bag) within a month or two. You can also try this option: January-February sow lavender seeds in small box with good drainage and nutritious soil, and bury the box in the snow. In the spring, carefully remove the drawer and earthen, not peretryahivaya it, move to a permanent place of "residence" lavender, which determine beforehand. Naturally, the soil should be prepared by you in advance.
There is another propagating lavender seeds. Holding seeds in the cold for 30-40 days, in February or early in March sow their seedlings in a tray or drawer (the soil should be nutritious and at the same time permeable, i.e. with a high content of sand or gravel). Place the tray in a well-lit place, the room temperature should be from +15 up to +22ºC. For faster germination can process the crops by means of "Gibberellin" (150-200 mg/l). Grown seedlings planted in a hothouse at a distance of 5-8 cm from one another. Hotbed always ventilate. At the end of may you can plant each sprout in a permanent place.
Avid gardeners manage to grow lavender at home, although no single reference book on floriculture mentions lavender as a houseplant. If you want to take a chance and try to grow lavender at home, take fresh lavender seeds and sow them in a pot with a permeable soil (good drainage at the bottom and the mixture of river sand or gravel with the nourishing earth). Pour. After a short time you should see the sprouts. For the summer can make a pot on a balcony or loggia. With the onset of cold weather, bring home and identify in a cool place. Watering is very moderate. It is believed that if lavender survived the first winter, it will continue to grow normally. However, abundant flowering from it should not wait.
