How often should you water potted lavender?
How do you get lavender to bloom?
English lavender is hardy in Zones 5 and warmer, usually overwintering in the ground outside just fine without any added protection. In an open winter with no snow cover, we may pile a thin layer (1 to 2 inches) of straw or shredded leaves over them for added cover.
What do I do with my lavender plant in the winter?
The most common reasons for a Lavender plant dying are improper watering, over-fertilization, acidic soil pH, diseases, pests, or inadequate sunlight. Careful inspection of the plant and growing conditions are essential to help identify and fix the issue.
The only way to revive lavender that has been in the shade is to transfer it to a pot and place it in the sun as quickly as possible. Lavenders require sun all year round, including during the winter dormancy so plant the lavender in a nice open space that is not under a tree canopy or any other shade.
How much water does lavender need a day?
Potted lavender need to be watered once every two weeks under normal conditions. I recommend watering potted lavenders even if there has been rainfall within a two week period as pots will dry out quicker as they are above ground.
