Lavender #2


Lavender Care

Planting: Choose a location with full sunlight and well-drained soil for your Lavender. Ensure proper spacing to allow good air circulation between plants. Plant in spring or fall, spacing plants about 12 to 18 inches apart.

Watering: Lavender prefers dry to moderately moist soil. Water newly planted Lavender regularly to establish roots, but once established, water sparingly. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. Water at the base of the plant to avoid wetting the foliage, which can lead to disease.

Soil: Lavender thrives in well-drained, sandy or gravelly soil with low fertility. Amend heavy or clay soils with sand or gravel and ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogging.

Mulching: Apply a thin layer of gravel or crushed stone around the base of the plant to retain soil moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth. Avoid organic mulches that can trap moisture around the plant’s stems.

Fertilizing: Lavender is a light feeder and generally does not require fertilization. If necessary, apply a small amount of balanced fertilizer in spring, but avoid excessive nitrogen, which can promote lush foliage at the expense of flowers.

Pruning: Prune Lavender lightly after flowering to remove spent blooms and shape the plant. Avoid cutting into old wood, as Lavender may not regrow from woody stems. Trim back woody growth in spring to encourage new growth from the base.

Protection: Lavender is generally resistant to pests and diseases, but monitor for common issues such as aphids or root rot. Treat promptly if necessary with insecticidal soap or fungicide.

Winter Care: In colder climates, Lavender may benefit from winter protection. Mulch around the base of the plant with gravel or straw to insulate the roots from freezing temperatures.
