It's All About The Water

I too had my first order of two Sweet Romance die as well. I followed the instructions on the website and read a lot of articles on this specific plant, I placed them in a 6+ hours sunny area and kept the water dry to average, but to no avail. I contacted customer services, which are amazing by the way, they told me since I live in Houston, TX and I ordered them in the middle of the summer that may be the reason they died, and they refunded me the cost of the plants. I was adamant I wanted this specific lavender in my garden so, I ordered two more and had them delivered in late September when it was cooler. I planted them and I noticed they were not happy and started to slowly die as the two prior had done so I went against what all the articles were telling me and I started watering them every day. The dying plants are back and very strong. What those articles are not telling you is if one is transplanting very young lavender, like those we are sent, you must water every day so they are happy and are encouraged to grow. The one on the right was a lot worse than what you see and the one on the left used to look like the one on the right, so great improvement. Now that I know what I need to do to help them grow, I need to order six more to complete my garden design.

So Dissapointed

I ordered 10 of these plants in the Spring and planted them as directed. Was careful not to give too much water. Planted them in full sun. They all died. Every single one of them. Was quite an investment for all 10 plants to have died.

Sweet romance lavender

I loved the plants when they shipped, and the awesome customer service. Unfortunately, these plants are very sensitive and the temp.s in Bakersfield are extreme. So I’m frustrated, as I want a border of sweet romance, but have gaps in my border instead. Ugh!!! Not sure what I did wrong. I made sure not to over or under water.

Sweet Romance Lavender

I previously posted a review and mistakenly gave 5 stars but the plants are so small it will take 10 years for them to grow.

Hello James! Thanks for leaving your feedback, we're sorry to hear you're disappointed in the size of your new plants. While these plants may be young you'd be surprised by how quickly they'll grow and establish within the next year or so thanks to their root systems. Give them some time and they will definitely reward you!

Unfortunately died

I had my plants for one week and then planted them in the ground. Two out of the three never even attempted to grow. I am limping the third one along but it doesn’t look good. I have left all three in the ground, fertilize as directed just in case there is some hope! I don’t know what the issue is but it’s clearly just a plant issue. The plants arrived well packed but quite small for the price. I was surprised how small. I think I may try to order a few more to see how they arrive. Maybe I just received a lousy batch.
