Plant Care Guide

Full Sunlight


By growing your lavender in full sunlight, you can ensure your plant will be producing lots of buds and big full lavender bushes.

Infrequent Watering


Lavender is extremely drought-tolerant once your plant becomes established. When your lavender is young keep it regularly watered during the first growing season. After that they are resilient to extended periods of drought. If you end up watering too much it can lead to fungal disease and root rot.



Soil without added organic matter will encourage the lavender plant to develop a higher concentration of oils which leads to all the good lavender smells we know.

Low Humidity


Lavender can handle a wide range of temperatures, but dampness can lead to your plant dying. Lavender likes low humidity, dry areas where wet roots in the winter and heavy wet air in the summer can be avoided.
