Plant Lavender Under This Fruit Tree And Watch Both Of Them Thrive
Lavender is a beautiful purple evergreen plant that helps keep an ecosystem healthy. Planting it near an olive tree will help the tree thrive and add character to your landscape.
The plant improves soil health and structure and increases water retention and nutrient absorption. Its scent acts as a pest repellent, protecting the more vulnerable olive tree.
Its small purple flowers on spiky stems complement the green leaves of an olive tree, whether in yards or on the patio, and give any landscape a beautiful Mediterranean feel.
Both plants prefer well-drained soil that’s alkaline and grow best in regions with hot summers and mild winters. They need little water — lavender can be watered every two weeks.
