Pot up plugs into 11cm pots and grow them on until large enough to plant outside in their final positions. Plant outside in a sunny site on free draining soil. Lavender particularly dislikes wet ground during winter months so incorporate plenty of coarse grit or sharp sand when planting on heavy clay soils. When growing lavender in patio containers, use a well drained soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Water well and position in full sun
Feed and water until plants are established. Once established, lavender plants are reasonably drought tolerant and will seldom require attention. Prune Lavender stems back to two buds immediately after flowering to promote bushy growth and a multitude of flowers the following year. New growth can be lightly shaped in March if necessary.

  1. Follow up on the review " Very Poor Customer Service".

    By James Hughes 02-05-2015

    I just want to place an update regarding my lavender plug plants. They arrived today after 3 weeks wait. Firstly to be fair not sure who was at fault. I got in touch with customer services eventually again not sure who's fault that was as the email contact I had was from groupon, but as soon as I contacted them via the web site, to be honest after my last review, I got a very nice reply apologising and promising to send out a new order which arrived within a couple of days. The plants I received are in very good condition and much better than I expected. They are of a good size and well watered. So far so good, just hoping that they all take to being potted and grow well. If I get a decent crop from these the I will up date the review to 5. Than you for resolving this problem.
