Grow your own lavender

Here are some tips for our lavender lovers to grow your own!

English lavender (Augustifolia) is the hardiest for the zones in Ontario.

You need good draining soil and a sunny spot.

Prune it twice a year, in the Spring and Fall, into the green foliage but not as far as the woody stems.

And people always ask if they should cover theirs in the winter like we do. We just cover ours in case of severe weather such as ice, and so we don't lose all 1,800 plants. That would be devastating! For anyone with just a few plants, you don't need to cover them in the winter as it isn't as difficult to replant them if you have to. Remember, snow is actually beneficial, as it insulates the plant!

Stay tuned for more tips!
