Soil: Performs well in soils with good drainage.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day)
Water: Dry to average. Thrives in dry conditions once established, but will not tolerate overly moist soil for any period of time.
Spacing: 1.5 - 2' feet apart
Fertilizing: Lavender need little in the way of fertilizer and may perform poorly if given some.
Winterizing: Do not apply mulch around base, as this can keep conditions overly wet.
Maintenance & pruning: In spring after first bloom, prune above last two sets of green leaves. Do not cut into wood, unless removing a damaged branch entirely. Can be pruned again in late summer to encourage renewed growth and handsome appearance for the rest of the season. Deadhead faded flowers to promote continued bloom.
