Lavender, like many plants, has to undergo a cold, dark period prior to planting to be successful. You can put your seed into a paper bag and into the refrigerato for about 5 weeks or so. If you live where it gets very cold, snows, etc... you can simply try putting seed into the ground in the fall, for spring growth... but many seeds will be eaten, so plant a lot!
