Q.Lavender Growing

Anonymous added on April 15, 2014 | Answered

I bought a lavender plant a few weeks back and kept it inside, as I was told it was too cold yet to plant it outside. It is now growing very long and weak “arms” (no idea what the correct word is) that are very floppy and do no stand up straight. What can I do? Is the plant healthy? Will it survive when I plant it outside?

Legginess in plants is often due to a lack of sufficient light, which indoors may not be enough. Generally, as long as the threat of frost has passed in your area and the ground has warmed enough for working, planting lavender outdoors this spring would be fine.
