Dive into Simply Trees' ultimate guide to understanding and caring for the enchanting Phenomenal Lavender, Lavandula. Whether you've just embraced this fragrant delight into your home or are on the lookout to rejuvenate an existing one, this piece has all the answers!

1. Choosing Your Lavender Plant: For those still on their quest for the perfect lavender, look no further than our handpicked Phenomenal Lavender, Lavandula, available at Simply Trees. We ensure each plant meets our gold standard of vitality and fragrance. When selecting, look for those that are lush and free from any pests – the hallmark of Simply Trees quality!

2. Understanding Transit Stress: Lavender, like many plants, might experience some stress when shipped. If your freshly-arrived lavender seems a bit off-color or droopy, don't worry! Transit stress is typical. With some love and care, your lavender will adjust splendidly to its new home.

3. Helping Your Lavender Settle In:

  • Immediate Care: Give it some water, but don't drown it. This will help to refresh it after its journey.

  • Sunlight: Ensure it has access to bright, indirect sunlight initially. Over the next few days, gradually introduce it to direct sunlight for a smooth transition.

  • Rest: Refrain from immediately repotting or fertilizing. Let your plant acclimatize first.

4. Planting Your Lavender:

  • When: Ideally, in the spring, post the frost period.

  • Where: A sunny spot that gets 6-8 hours of direct sunlight.

  • How: Dig a hole about twice the width of the root ball. Ensure it's at the same depth. Place, fill, and firm the soil around gently.

5. Soil Essentials: Your lavender thrives in well-draining soil. A Mediterranean mix or even a cactus mix, when combined with sand or perlite, can work wonders.

6. Water Wisdom: Water thoroughly but let the soil dry between sessions. When the top inch of soil feels dry, it’s hydration time.

7. Basking in Sunlight: A daily dose of 6-8 hours of direct sunlight ensures your lavender remains vibrant. Indoors? A south-facing window is your lavender's best friend.

8. Seasonal Safeguarding: Cold winters? Move your potted lavender indoors or shield your garden lavender with frost cloths.

9. Reviving Your Lavender: Should your lavender seem less lively:

  • Trim and Prune: Remove dead or damaged parts.

  • Re-check Its Spot: Sunlight is key.

  • Hydration Check: Balance is vital, neither too dry nor too wet.

  • Air Circulation: A breath of fresh air can prevent diseases.

  • Stay Patient: Sometimes, lavender just needs time to adapt.

With these guidelines, you’re set to enjoy the aromatic and visual pleasure your Phenomenal Lavender offers. Need more guidance or looking to expand your plant family? Simply Trees is always here to help!
