Here's How To Find The Best Spot In The Garden To Plant Lavender
Lavender is an aromatic herb commonly grown in Mediterranean gardens, as the naturally sandy soil, mild sunshine, and temperate climate provide a perfect environment for it.
Lavender prefers well-drained, somewhat sandy, slightly alkaline, and "thin" soil. If your soil is loamy, adding a bit of sand will help increase the drainage.
Lavender needs at least five hours of direct sunlight per day to thrive and bloom. It is also relatively heat tolerant as long
as the humidity is not too high.
Lavender plants require good air circulation, so make sure other plants don’t crowd them. Planting them along a walkway is an excellent way to provide them with some air and space.
If your soil is not suited to lavender, you can grow it in containers. This is also a good option if you want to cultivate the plant but aren’t in the right growing zone.
