Growing and Maintenance Tips

Lavender will thrive in the hottest, driest site in the garden. Poor gravelly soil that is very well drained will produce the best results. Trim the plant to shape it in the spring after new growth has begun. Evergreen boughs over the plant after freeze up will trap snow and help with winter survival.
