Lavender Plant Care

Sensational! Lavender is a low maintaitence plant that has a high tolerance for heat, cold, and humidity. 

Does best in full sun and well drained soil. Loves arid environments! 

Water regularly after planting or repotting, keeping soil moist but not wet until the plant is established. May benefit from gravel mulch on top of soil. 

Established lavender does best with the minimal amount of water and fertilizer required to keep it alive. 

Best planted when soil and air temperatures are not falling below 50°F. Does best when temperatures are between 60°F and 85°F.

Do not cut back in fall. Only cut back in spring once new growth begins to appear. Do not cut back more than 50% of total length, leaving a minimum of 2" at the base.
