Lavender Plant Care

Light

Lavender loves full sun. It will flourish as long as they receive at least six hours of direct sunlight.

Soil

Lavender is suitable in a pot or garden bed with well-drained soils where it can enjoy good air circulation.

Water

Lavender requires regular watering until established. Soak the soil thoroughly, and allow the water to drain through as they don’t like wet feet. Lavender is drought tolerant once it’s well-rooted.

Temperature & Humidity

Lavender is native to arid regions where it prefers hot and dry temperatures. Some Lavender varieties can tolerate mild humidity and colder areas also.

Maintenance

Prune any discoloured leaves and spent flowers with a gentle snip of the secateurs, this will encourage continuous blooming. It is also advisable to prune back your Lavender plant by one third after summer which will encourage more compact and full growth.
