Planting Advice

Your lavender plant will thrive in a bright, sunny position. Plant it in dry, well drained, sandy or gravelly soil, where it can enjoy good air circulation.

Watering needs

Once established, lavender requires little water. If your garden doesn't have excellent drainage, do not overwater as lavender does not like wet feet.

Pruning Advice

To extend the flowering period of your lavendar plant, cut off any dead flowers. Keep your plant dense and tidy with a prune after the main summer flowering period. If needed, you can do a harder prune (by about one third) however don t go past green foliage and into the older wood as these branches don t always recover and can leave patches in your plant.
