LOCATION:

Make sure you plant your lavender in a sunny location that will receive at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. Plant in early spring as soon as the last frost is over.

SOIL:

  • Lavender likes well drained soil. You can use raised beds or containers.
  • Choose a soil with low fertility.
  • Lavender prefers alkaline soil, therefore the pH level should be 6.5 or higher.
  • Blend equal parts bone meal, lime, and well composted manure.

PLANTING LAVENDER:

  • Plant seeds about an inch deep into the soil. This goes for both ground planting and pot planting.
  • Water deeply as soon as you plant.
  • Space plants 5-6 feet from one another.

CARING FOR LAVENDER:

  • During the hot summer months, make sure to water your lavender plant every single day.
  • Prune the top of the plant to ensure a productive plant.
  • If nights get too cold, bring your plant inside (if in a pot/container).
  • Once lavender is well rooted, it is tolerant of heat waves and dry spells.

Happy Planting!
