How do I fertilize Lavender Provence?
Lavender Provence should be fertilized once per year to ensure optimal growth and vibrant hues. We suggest fertilizing Lavender during the fall with 2-1-1 alkalizing plant food.
How often do I water water Lavandin?
We suggest watering your plant one to two times per month throughout the spring to mid-fall growing season. Lavender Provence enjoys drying out between watering, and rarely needs to be watered during the dormant season. Young plants should be watered moderately, while established plants should receive a deep watering throughout the summer months.
What soil is best for Lavender Provence?
We recommend that you grow Lavender Provence in average, dry to medium, well-drained, alkaline soil in full sun. Lavandin can be difficult to grow in the far north area, primarily because of winter stresses and high summer humidity. Well-drained soils are required, particularly in winter. Root rot commonly attacks plants grown in poorly drained soils. Lavender prefers a light, sandy soil with somewhat low fertility.
