Planting Conditions

Lavender thrives in well-drained soil and full sunlight. We advise preparing the planting area by mixing in organic matter to improve drainage, especially in clay soils. Dig holes slightly larger than the root ball, spacing plants 18-24 inches apart. Gently remove plants from containers and loosen roots before planting. Place them at the same depth as they were in their pots and backfill with soil. Water thoroughly to settle the soil around the roots. This ensures optimal conditions for robust growth and prolific blooming.

Watering & Feeding

We advise watering Lavender sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. Deep watering once a week during dry spells is sufficient. Avoid wetting the foliage to prevent fungal diseases. Fertilise sparingly with a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in early Spring to support healthy growth and flowering. Over-fertilisation can lead to excessive foliage at the expense of flowers. Mulch around plants with gravel or crushed stone to conserve moisture and suppress weeds while preventing waterlogged soil conditions.

General Care

For Lavender, minimal care is needed once established. Prune lightly after flowering to maintain shape and encourage bushiness. Avoid cutting into old wood as it may not regrow. Remove spent flower spikes promptly to stimulate further blooms and prevent seed formation. In Spring, trim back one-third of the plant's growth to promote vigorous new growth. Regularly inspect for signs of pests such as aphids or fungal diseases like powdery mildew, addressing them promptly to maintain plant health and vitality.
