Lavender seeds need to be placed inside the refrigerator 3 weeks before ready to sow them.
Just cover the seed with compost and keep the soil damp but not wet. Compost mix with pearlite or vermiculite work wonders.
After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Avoid direct exposed to direct hot sunlight
