Germination, Growth, and Harvest:
Sow seeds in a well-draining soil mix to germinate and cover them lightly. Maintain a consistent temperature of 70-75°F (21-24°C) and keep the soil moist but not overly wet. Seedlings should emerge within 2-4 weeks.
Once your lavender plants reach a height of 2-3 inches, transplant them to your garden or larger containers, spacing them about 18-24 inches apart. As they grow, ensure they receive full sun and well-draining soil.
To harvest lavender, wait until the flower buds have formed but have not yet opened. This is when the essential oils are at their peak. Then, cut the flower stems, leaving a few inches of stem attached to the plant for regrowth.
