Lavender Seeds

dirtduchess(7b Texas)December 1, 2008

I have 4 fern leaf lavender bushes that have died from the cold. How do I harvest the seeds? I have cut off the flowers but unable to dig out or shake those tiny seeds loose. I really don't see any seeds at all.

Many common lavenders do not make seeds and some that do are sterile seeds. Plus, even if you have non-sterile seeds germinating them requires cold stratification and has a very low success rate. Lavender is best done from cuttings. The link below gives you all the details on the various types of lavender and how to propagate them.
