Planting & Maintenance Tips – All Varieties
Lavender is a hearty, drought resistant plant that compliments any outdoor space. It’s a natural bug deterrent, deer and rabbit resistant and wonderfully fragrant flower that bees and butterflies adore.
Here are a couple recommendations for planting your new lavender plants:
- Full sun. The more the better.
- Plant in well draining soil. Add sand if you need too.
- Water your new plants regularly.
- Once plant is established, water infrequently (every 2 weeks).
- Harvest when flowers have partially bloomed.
- Prune back new growth in fall and spring.
- Do not over-water your lavender!
Good luck and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask a staff member on site or contact us here.
