Happy plants

5 out of 5 stars Jul 20, 2020
These seeds had a great germination rate. Like all lavenders I've tried from seed, there is a large variable in days until germination. Several sprouted within a couple of weeks and dozens followed within another 4 weeks. I won't have flowers until next year but the plants are happy and healthy looking.

Not one seed germinated

I have planted a lot of seeds from this company and have had success for the most part. But I could not get a single English lavender seed to germinate.

followed packet directions with stratification

5 out of 5 stars Apr 27, 2022
I had a very good germination % following stratification instructions on the inside of the packet. I put them in soil in plastic take-out containers and then placed for several weeks over the winter in the fridge. Took the containers out of the fridge about mid-March (I was late with stratification) and let them spend some time under a grow light. I ended up with 6 or so healthy seedlings. I just potted out the seedlings into well-draining containers in full sun and they're healthy and happy. Just have to be patient with these.

Bummed!

Not one seed germinated. I was looking forward to a bunch of lavender plants and I have none. But I want to add that this one of very few seeds from my order that did not germinate.
MALA from MA

As we guarantee our seed, a customer service representative will be in contact with you soon. We do hope that you try again.
