For indoor growing, lavender should receive as much light as possible. It will do best in a south-facing window or where it can get a minimum of three to four hours of direct sunlight.
Indoors, good ventilation and air circulation are important, but do not place the plant where it will be exposed to the direct flow of forced-air heat.
Drench thoroughly when watering and allow the soil to become slightly dry between waterings. Check soil moisture by feeling soil with your finger.
Cutting branches for flower harvest causes new growth to sprout and promotes bushiness. Tip prune occasionally if more bushiness is desired.
Fertilize with all-purpose, water-soluble fertilizer at half strength every four weeks during spring and summer.
Repot after one year or in early spring into an 8″ pot, using good-quality potting soil.1. This plant should not be eaten.
