Growing Lavender

Growing Lavender

Lavender is a bushy, strong-scented perennial plant from the Mediterranean valued for its medicinal properties and ability to attract pollinators.

PLANTING

  • Lavender is best planted in the spring when the soil is warming up.
  • Plant lavender 2 to 3 feet apart.
  • Add organic matter to the soil to improve drainage.
  • Keep away from moist areas.

CARE

  • Add mulch around the lavender plant to discourage weeds.
  • Water once or twice a week until plants are established. Water mature plants every two to three weeds until buds form, and then once or twice a week until harvest.
  • Prune established plants in the spring when green leaves emerge. Remove approximately one third of the top.

PESTS/DISEASES

  • Lavender is susceptible to root rot, so make sure to let the soil dry out between waterings.

HARVEST

  • Harvest in the morning when the lavender’s oils are the most concentrated.
  • Cut long stems to gather into bundles. Secure with a rubber band or twine.
  • Dry lavender in a cool, dark place with good air circulation.

DRIED USES

  • Make lavender sachets—a thoughtful gift!
  • Mix lavender with mint leaves to make a soothing herbal tea.
  • Use the dried flowers to make a homemade sleep mask to promote relaxation.
  • Simmer the dried herb in a pot of water with some citrus peels for a natural air freshener.
  • Use it in the kitchen! Cooking with lavender creates fragrant, beautiful recipes.
