How To Grow Lavender Ellagance: Growing Lavender from seed indoors is not difficult. Sow Lavender seeds indoors 8 - 10 weeks before last frost. Use sterile starter mix and sow the herb seeds on the surface, pressing them into the soil. Cover the Lavender seeds very lightly as they need light for germination. Transplant Lavender seedlings outdoors in mid-spring once frost danger has passed, spacing the plants 10 inches apart. Grow Ellagance Sky Lavender plants in full sun and in well-drained soil. Trim the Lavender herb plants each spring to encourage their compact, mounded habit.
