Growing lavender is a rewarding experience that can bring beauty and fragrance to any garden. Lavender is an evergreen, herbaceous perennial shrub with beautiful spikes of purple flowers and aromatic foliage. It’s easy to grow, but there are some important considerations to keep in mind if you want the best results. Here are a few tips on how to grow lavender successfully in your garden.
How To Grow Lavender?
First, it’s important to choose the right spot for your lavender plants. They need several hours of direct sunlight each day and well-drained soil with a pH between 6-7. If you’re unsure about the pH of your soil, it’s worth testing it before planting. To promote good drainage, add organic matter such as compost or manure when preparing for planting and make sure the area gets plenty of air circulation.
Additionally, make sure that there are plenty of drainage holes at the bottom of each pot if you’re using containers instead.
