How to grow lavender on the balcony?
352 views · Dec 21, 2021
Lavender is a perennial plant that lives quite a long time, growing to the size of a large bush, if conditions permit.

However, in order to keep lavender safe and sound until next year, with the onset of cold weather from the balcony, it must be transferred to the house.

You don't have to do this if your balcony is glazed, because lavender will calmly grow overwinter even at a temperature of 0-5 degrees.

How to plant lavender?

Before planting in a pot, the small plant will need to be pruned by about a third.

If this is not done, you will not expect flowers from lavender.

The stems should be cut carefully and in no case touch the woody part, otherwise this can lead to the death of the plant.

The size of the bush will depend on the pot in which the lavender will grow, because the roots of the flower grow in proportion to its height.

Therefore, if you want to see a large bush on your balcony, choose a voluminous planter, if small - a small one.

How to grow lavender at home?

Growing lavender from their seeds is also not difficult.

Purchased seeds should be planted in May immediately to a permanent place to a depth of no more than 0.5 centimeters.

It will take about two months from sowing a seed to the flowering of an adult lavender bush, so in July this wonderful plant will delight you with an amazingly fresh aroma.

For abundant flowering, lavender needs sunlight, so it will be best if the sun's rays fall on the flower from morning to evening.
