Why Lavender Needs Specialized Nutrients

Lavender requires specific nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium in balanced proportions to support its growth, essential oil production, and overall resilience against environmental stressors.


Water lavender deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot.


Provide lavender with full sun for at least 6-8 hours daily to ensure optimal growth and abundant blooms.


Plant lavender in well-draining, slightly alkaline soil amended with gravel or sand to mimic its native Mediterranean conditions.
