Growing Lavender in Raleigh, NC

Anonymous added on March 28, 2011 | Answered

I read somewhere that lavender does not grow well in areas where the humidity is high 80%. Is that true? Is there a variety that will do well in this climate?

High humidity makes it more susceptible to fungal disease, plus areas with high humidity tend to get a lot of rain, which they don't like. If you take steps to control the fungus, by applying fungicide to the soil, and you make sure it has excellent drainage, you should still be able to grow it.
