CARE
Care Thrives in lean, loose, fast-draining, slightly alkaline soil with a gravel mulch. Plant with crowns slightly above soil level. Water regularly during first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Prune lightly after flowering to promote next season's growth.
HISTORY
Lore Since the ancient Phoenecians and Egyptians who first utilized its oils, lavender has been central to medicine and hygiene and magic of many cultures. It was valued as a powerful fragrance since ancient times. In Europe lavender and its oil was integrated into hundreds of preparations designed to cure everything from syphilis to the bite of a mad dog. It was highly valued by the Romans in their famous baths and remains today a favorite herb and oil for soaps and other cosmetics.
