Lavender Plants
Q.

My lavender plant is drooping and I’d love to know how to care for it and not kill it.

I planted it almost a week ago and have only watered it once based on what I’ve read on caring for lavender. It gets at least 6 hours of sun each day and the weather has been warm (in the 80s). It’s drooping and I’d love to know why so I don’t kill it!

If you only watered once in a week, you plant is likely very thirsty.
You will need to water daily for the first few weeks, until the roots began to grow.
Add a few inches of mulch around the plant to help in moisture retention and keep the plant cool.
