Grow Instructions: Get Your Hands Dirty and Grow Lavender
- Get your hands dirty! Fill a pot or garden bed with well-draining soil and make a hole big enough to fit your lavender plant.
- Give your lavender a good home! Gently place your plant in the hole and cover the roots with soil. Pat the soil down to make sure your plant is secure.
- Show your lavender some love! Lavender likes lots of sunshine, so make sure to place it in a spot that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day. Give it a drink of water when the soil is dry to the touch.
- Let your lavender do its thing! Lavender is a low-maintenance plant that doesn’t need a lot of water. Just sit back and watch it grow, and enjoy the beautiful purple-blue flowers and sweet fragrance.
- Don’t forget to give your lavender a trim! In the spring, give your lavender a light trim to promote new growth and keep it looking neat and tidy.
- Enjoy the benefits of lavender! Use your lavender flowers to make potpourri, sachets, or lavender-infused oil. Or, just sit back and enjoy the calming fragrance of your lavender plant.
Remember, growing lavender is easy and fun! Just give it some sunshine, water, and love, and you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful and fragrant plant.
Important: Watering Frequency
- Plug: Water once or twice a week, depending on the size of the plug and the moisture level of the soil. Allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering again.
- Small pot (3-inch or 4-inch): Water once a week or when the soil feels dry to the touch. Be careful not to overwater, as lavender does not like to sit in soggy soil.
- Medium pot (6-inch to 8-inch): Water every 10 to 14 days, or when the soil feels dry. Again, avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot and other problems.
- Large pot or garden bed: Water deeply once a week or when the soil feels dry. Lavender prefers to be slightly on the dry side, so make sure the soil has good drainage to prevent water from pooling around the roots.
What to Do When Your Silver Mist Lavender Plant Arrives At Your Doorstep
When your Lavandula angustifolia ‘Silver Mist’ plant arrives at your doorstep, it’s important to allow it to rest for 24 hours in its new environment before watering it. This will give the plant a chance to recover from any stress it may have experienced during shipping. Once you’re ready to water, give the plant a good soak and then allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering again. Remember, overwatering is the most common mistake people make when growing lavender, so be careful not to water too often!

Wet, poorly-draining soil and high humidity conditions with poor air movement are detrimental to lavender plants and often lead to decline. Once vernalized, lavender will flower under any day length.
