How To Care for your new Munstead Lavender
Lavender thrives in full sun and dry climates. Grosso Lavender adapts to any well-draining soil. This hardy variety is able to tolerate sandy and salt conditions and is deer and rabbit tolerant. Grosso Lavender is heat and cold tolerant and once established it is very drought tolerant. Be sure to provide plenty of room for your lavender to grow so there is proper air circulation. Avoid overhead watering. This provides an ideal climate for fungus to grow causing problems including death for your lavender. Fertilize in spring when you start to see your lavender emerging from dormancy.
Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.
Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.
Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil. Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.
Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.
Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.
Finish up by mulching around your new plant. Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.
Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
