Soil: Any well-drained soil will do. Lavender cannot tolerate wet soils for any length of time.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day)
Water: Dry to average. Very tolerant of dry conditions once established.
Spacing: 18 - 24 inches
Fertilizing: Lavender need little in the way of fertilizer. However, if your plants were severely set back by winter damage, you may wish to apply some granular garden fertilizer in early spring to give it a boost in its recovery.
Winterizing: Plants may get some damage in winter, which can be exacerbated by wet soil conditions.
Maintenance & pruning: Remove faded flowers to promote continued bloom. Prune once or twice a year to keep plant shapely. Prune option #1: in the spring after the lavender wakes up. Wait until the lavender has signs of new growth (do not worry if it takes a while to wake up).
