Caring for your Spanish Lavender
- A flowering Lavender should not be allowed to dry out as it will shorten the bloom life. Keep your Lavender’s soil moist each day while in flower. Water directly onto the surface of the soil and avoid sprinkling over the flowers as that will shorten flower life. Avoid letting your Lavender sit in water as it is harmful to the roots.
- Feed your Lavender regularly while flowering with a perennial fertilizer.
- Trim after the first wave of flowers is spent. Gather and grasp the top of the plant firmly in your hand and trim off the flower stems. Trimming off the tips of the branches will help shape the plant. The new growth will produce fresh flowers quickly and continue blooming well into fall.
