Potted Lavender Plant Sagging

mrmosey added on May 25, 2011 | Answered

I live in South Africa. I was recently given the above plant. I have had it for about 2 weeks now ~ it came from a florist. Just yesterday I noticed that the heads (flowers) were completely bending over and sagging as if lack of water. Why would this be happening? Should I plant it out into the garden, or what should I do?

It may have gotten too much water and now has root rot. This article will help you diagnose that:

If that is not the issue, than it may be under watered. If it is in a container, it will need watering everyday outside when temps are over 30C.
