Welcome to Simply Trees' comprehensive guide, your key to understanding and caring for the mesmerizing Phenomenal Lavender. Whether you're a newcomer to the world of lavender or seeking to reinvigorate an existing plant, you've come to the right place for all the answers!

1. Choosing Your Lavender Plant

2. Understanding Transit Stress

Lavender, like many plants, can experience some stress during transportation. If your freshly-arrived lavender appears slightly off-color or droopy, fret not! Transit stress is a common occurrence. With a little TLC, your lavender will gracefully adapt to its new surroundings.

3. Helping Your Lavender Settle In

Immediate Care: Provide a drink of water to refresh your lavender after its journey, but avoid drowning it.

Sunlight: Ensure your lavender has access to bright, indirect sunlight initially. Gradually introduce it to direct sunlight over the next few days for a seamless transition.

Rest: Resist the urge to repot or fertilize immediately. Allow your plant to acclimate first.

4. Planting Your Lavender

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

Where: Choose a sunny spot that receives 6-8 hours of direct sunlight.

How: Dig a hole approximately twice the width of the root ball at the same depth. Place the lavender, fill the hole, and gently firm the soil around it.

5. Soil Essentials

Your lavender thrives in well-draining soil. Consider a Mediterranean or cactus mix combined with sand or perlite for optimal results.

6. Water Wisdom

Water thoroughly, but allow the soil to dry between sessions. Hydrate when the top inch of soil feels dry.

7. Basking in Sunlight

A daily dose of 6-8 hours of direct sunlight ensures your lavender remains vibrant. If indoors, a south-facing window is your lavender's best companion.

8. Seasonal Safeguarding

During cold winters, move your potted lavender indoors or shield your garden lavender with frost cloths to protect it from the chill.

9. Reviving Your Lavender

If your lavender appears less lively, follow these steps:

  • Trim and Prune: Remove dead or damaged parts.
  • Re-evaluate Its Spot: Ensure it's receiving sufficient sunlight.
  • Hydration Check: Strike a balance between not too dry and not too wet.
  • Air Circulation: Enhance air circulation to prevent diseases.
  • Patience: Sometimes, lavender simply needs time to adjust.

With these guidelines, you're well-equipped to savor the aromatic and visual delights your Phenomenal Lavender brings. Need further assistance or looking to expand your plant family? Simply Trees is your dedicated partner in all things botanical!
