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. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAlthough commonly known as English lavender, \u003cem\u003eLavandula angustifolia\u003c\/em\u003e is actually native to the cool Mediterranean nations of Spain, France, Italy, and Croatia.
