Tips for Growing Lavender

 If you want to grow lavender in your garden, look for the sunniest area in your yard. Even in the fall, you should still get a good amount of sunshine during the day. You want your soil to have good drainage and be slightly sweet. With lavender, you should get an established plant instead of trying to germinate it from the seed.

Lavender is good to harvest when the flowers are almost fully open, but not quite. This allows it to stay fragrant and have lasting effects. If you are making herbed sachets or similar products, you can remove the flowers and the stems to be used for them. The same goes for lavender potpourri.

If you have problems growing your own Lavender then you can buy lavender flowers and use them in your own DIY projects or buy Lavender essential oil to help with sleep or contact me to order just one bottle.

      Yes you can, this is the best time to move it. Put in a clay pot then cut back the growth by 1 inch, then move back outside when it’s safe.
