  • Wish I could help you with the lavender, but I too have difficulty with it, yet a neighbor (who has since gone to her reward) used to say it was EASY to grow. We never found the issue with my garden as compared to hers.

    Mine face South/Southeast and her South/Southwest. Environmentally I should be fine. Soil should be very similar since we were both on the same hill. You don't need to fertilize normally so I was still OK, but I always tried from seed and usually planted in the Spring.

    Depending on variety, common wisdom says to plant in the fall in our zone 7, letting it set roots during the cool months. (don't know when THAT will be this year) I did not try that so maybe it did not have enough roots set to thrive in our Summers.

    Usually watering is not needed except to get started. Over-watering can be harmful so their roots need to be well drained. My site should have qualified for all of it, so the only difference was planting time.

    Your question raised renewed interest in me, so maybe this fall I will try again?
