Cultural Notes: Lavender is very drought tolerant once established however moderate watering for the first few months after planting will encourage stronger more vigorous plants. Watering directly on the soil rather than the foliage can help to reduce the possibility of fungal problems occurring. Lightly trim after flowering to remove spent blooms and to maintain shape. Fertilise in spring and summer using a high quality complete fertiliser. Soil must be open and free draining. Lavender is intolerant of heavy or waterlogged soils. Improve drainage if necessary using well rotted organic matter or raised beds. Space plants 30cm apart for a hedge or border Images and information courtesy of Paradise Plants.
