How to Seed Start Sage & Lavender Indoors: Slow Growers!

How to Seed Start Sage & Lavender Indoors: Slow Growers!

Sage and lavender are great aromatic herbs. They do get large but they start out small and are slow growers. They can take up to 3 weeks to germinate. You can really start sage and lavender indoors 10-12 weeks before the garden will be ready for them.

Sage and lavender can  handle frost and in Maryland Zone 7, they are perennial herbs. They come back year after year and take our snows and freezes. They are sturdy herbs. I like to get them into my garden in the first week of April. I am not worried about frost with them. My goal is to grow them indoors to size so they really establish the first year and maybe even flower.

The video shows the basic method I use for getting them started indoors. I will do other videos on their growth, cup transplanting and final planting into the garden. Why not join my channel for new gardeners call My First Vegetable Garden!?
