Q.Watering Potted Violet Lace Lavender

Zone North Parramatta, NSW Australia | Anonymous added on July 24, 2022 | Answered

Hi, I bought a potted Lavender Violet Lace. The flowers I have noticed have drooped . I keep the potted Violet Lace on our balcony in full sun. And I bring it inside the unit over night to avoid damage of the flowers by the cold over winter in greater west NSW, Australia. I read that the drooping flowers is from over watering and therefore to allow at least 3 weeks to allow the roots to dry and avoid root rot. However when I watered it before I read this, I saw the flowers and stems actually stand up and not droop but now they’re dropping again. The soil is very dry. Should I water it? How many time a week should I water a potted lavender violet lace per week? I don’t want to over water it. Although there are mixed information online. Some say to water potted lavender plants twice a week and then there are some websites that say water lavender every 2 weeks. Is the watering every 2 weeks only for lavender that has been planted in the ground? I want to know how often I water potted lavender violet lavender per week during NSW winter. We live in North Parramatta, it is brought in over night but then brought out again on our balcony to get full sun. See photos attached. I watered this lavender plant about 3 days ago. Thanks for your help. Imelda

Yes, I enjoy gardening every weekend to unwind and enjoy the lovely plants and flower pots. I appreciate you sharing your lavender care tips. I should probably invest in some pots to take care of words from letters
