Lavender from seed

8 years ago

I'm back with more irritating questions. Thank you all for putting up with me.

I'm trying to start lavender from seed, but research says I need to keep the seeds warm in vermiculite to get them to germinate.

A.) is this for water absorption?

b.) is this slightly tedious, can an amended soil work?

c.) if vermiculite's (supposed) water absorption is absolutely necessary, is there a substitute? Like say... An unused diaper filling mixed with soil or compost?

d.) low budget is the goal...

My thanks go out to anyone who offers an answer.
