Lavender Growing Tips and Advice
Several varieties of this semi-hardy perennial exist, but all dislike frost. Lavender, which makes a nice edging or hedge, prefers plenty of sun and loose, fast-draining soil. It's easy to improve your soil using compost, which you can purchase, or make yourself using compost bins.
You can grow lavender from seed or small cuttings, though seeds, which germinate in about 15 days, are difficult to cultivate. Place plants 12 inches apart. Prune your lavender immediately after it blooms, but don’t take more than 1/3 of the top growth at one cutting.
