English Lavender Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Lavender must be grown in full sun to be able to produce flowers, so do not hesitate to plant them in those hot, dry areas where nothing else seems to grow.  They will actually grow better in poor, gravelly soil than in rich humus; don't be tempted to enrich the soil when you plant it.  Sharp drainage, especially in winter, is essential for preventing crown rot.  Other than that, Lavender is known to have few problems with pests and diseases.  Shearing back the evergreen foliage in early spring will rejuvenate plants and stimulate new growth.
