Tips for Growing Lavender Plants:

Lavender performs best when planted in loose, well-drained soil, which is slightly on the alkaline side. Alkaline soil will tend to produce higher oil content in the flowers leading to blooms that are more fragrant. For heavier soil, prior to planting Lavender add pea gravel, Green Clay, or playground sand to create better soil aeration.

Lavender plants do not like to have their roots wet, therefore plant on a gentle sloping area or create a slight mound before planting your lavender. Do not plant where water typically gathers on your property or where winter snow will pile up and stay until spring.

Water Lavender after the soil around the plants is dry. If needed, test the soil 1-2 inches down, and make sure that is dry and porous before watering.

Lavender is a Mediterranean plant, therefore, think hot, and dry. Air circulation is essential for optimum plant growth and health. Space lavender plants so that when full grown their branches are not touching other plants.

Lavender is evergreen, even in cold climates, but they do require cleanup in the spring. After winter, remove, dead leaves, and branches to encourage new growth. If you must mulch around the plant, use pea gravel or sand rather than bark mulch, which can cause moisture to become trapped around the base of the plant. A mulch of sand will moderate the soil temperature and reflect heat and light up to the plant.

Lavender thrives in full, hot sun. For best results locate the plants where they will receive at least 8 hours of full strength sun in the summer.

Lavender is particularly drought resistant after they are mature and well established. However, during the first year, they need to be regularly watered, especially during the hottest summer days. Do not forget to keep watering into the fall if you encounter a dry spell.

Proper pruning of Lavender is essential to produce healthy strong plants with good branching. Plants that are not well pruned have a tendency to fall open in the middle and sprawl. Although lavender plants are regularly pruned simply by harvesting the flowers, to keep them well shaped and to encourage new growth, a bit of late fall or early spring pruning is in order. Aggressive annual pruning will maintain a beautifully shaped plant and maximize flower production. Leave approximately 1" of green foliage on the plant when pruning.
