Growing Lavender in your garden

I'm growing Lavender!  Yeah!

Lavender can be grown from seed or from cuttings.  Lavender can be difficult growing from seed but not impossible.
 According to Easy to grow herbs:
"Seeds will take a long time. You will get an exact copy of the original plant with cuttings. Make sure that you take cuttings from your best mature plants.

You may also buy potted plants and place them in the ground.

Make sure that you plant lavender in warm weather. It should be in the late spring. Early summer is also a good time. It needs lots of sunshine too. Make sure that it will not be in a great deal of shade."

Soil is very important.  Drainage is important and should include loose compost.  Lavender can be grown both in the ground as well as in containers.  The larger the container, the larger the plant may grow.
