It is very common for lavender seeds to have low germination in general. Since lavender is a perennial plant, its energy is put into keeping itself and its root structure alive; unlike annuals that are primed for seed production perennials are not. So, their germination rate tends to be lower.
For the best germination, lavender seed needs cold stratification. Place seed on a moist paper towel, roll and seal in a Ziploc bag. Place in the back of the refrigerator for about one month. Check once a week and moisten the paper towel as needed. You may carefully remove seed as it germinates and plant in a sterile seeding mix. At the end of the stratification period, plant remaining seed and barely cover as light aids in germination. You should see growth in 14 to 30 days. Transplant seedlings when they have two sets of the true leaves using the same seeding mix. Lavender doesn't like to be water-logged so watch your watering carefully and supply a strong light source.
Although commonly known as English lavender, Lavandula angustifolia is actually native to the cool Mediterranean nations of Spain, France, Italy, and Croatia. This "“true lavender" variety is commercially planted for harvesting its oils for use in perfumes and essential oils. The species was once classified as Lavandula officinalis, the species name officinalis referring to its medicinal properties. However, the species was reclassified as angustifolia, which is simply translated from Latin meaning "“narrow leaf."
