Growing Lavender In Your Garden

You, too, can have lavender growing in your garden!

The low-maintenance shrubs have many uses: you can dry lavender to make oils and potpourri, or use it in cooking.


How to grow lavender

When growing lavender, you can either plant it from seed or propagate lavender cuttings. Both methods are straightforward and involve a bit of effort on your part.

Some of the farms featured here allow visitors to purchase or take cuttings from their fields, which will be perfect for propagating at home!

Whichever method you choose, place your plants in a sunny spot (at least six hours of sunlight) that’s shielded from strong winds. However, some lavender varieties will tolerate partial shade.


How to care for lavender

WATERING: You’ll need to regularly water young lavender plants, but their mature versions are very drought tolerant. Soak the soil during the hotter months, then wait for the ground to dry out.

PRUNING: Trimming is essential for keeping your lavender healthy. Regular pruning encourages flowering and prevents woody growth. Check for a reliable trimming service near you to help maintain your shrubs or hedges.

FERTILISING: It’s not necessary, but you can feed your lavender plants in the summer to boost flowering. You can mulch around the plant base to help retain moisture.

Lavender adds gorgeous colour to your gardens when flowering. We won’t blame you for wanting to grow your own plants after visiting a lavender farm — after all, lavender is just sup-herb.
