To properly care for your Munstead Lavender, it is important to provide it with full sun and well-draining soil. Lavender prefers nutrient-poor, slightly alkaline soil that is loose and fast-draining. Avoid planting in heavy clay soils that do not drain fast enough and can become waterlogged. Plant your Munstead Lavender slightly above the ground’s soil level to compensate for soil settling which may occur and to prevent rot by directing water flow away from the main stem.
Water regularly the first few weeks to help establish roots then reduce frequency and water as needed. Allow soil to dry in between waterings. Plants can become floppy and weak if overwatered. Best to water in the early morning and avoid watering overhead. Fertilizer is generally not needed.
Remove spent flowers to promote rebloom. Trim to shape in early spring and again in late summer after flowering.
Recommended spacing if planting as a border is 12-20 inches apart.
Munstead Lavender is perfect for adding fragrance and color to outdoor spaces. It is sure to make a beautiful addition to any garden.
