Q.How Do Lavender Seeds Naturally Spread?

Zone Northwest Coast (Washington) | Anonymous added on May 22, 2021 | Answered

Is it possible for lavender seeds to naturally spread? I’m entirely new to gardening and want to make sure before I plant. This might be a dumb question and I’m sorry and hope it’s an easy one to ask. If it is possible, then in what ways can it spread? Thanks!

Some cultivars, the lavendins, are sterile. Lavender can drop seed if the seedheads are allowed to dry on the stems and not harvested. The seeds are slow to germinate, however. The best way to reproduce lavender is by cuttings.
