Four tips for growing lavender

1) Lavender needs at least 6 hours of full sun per day.
2) Lavender likes rocky soil and ph between 6.5 and 7. Make sure you add a little bit of organic compost or lime if PH is lower.
3) Water lavender well and let them go dry. Lavender doesn’t like constantly wet soil as they are Mediterranean plants.
4) It’s really important to give a good haircut to small lavender plant. Cut them about 2-4 inches above the wood. Then you’ll have a lot more flowers on the lavender. Repeat that procedure during the next spring.

I wish I could be read better in Spanish, but I found a great site that will be of help with my veggies. Most tutoring net companies just sell netting and have no real expertise in agriculture. Hortomallas has a great library available to farmers as tutora means tutor as referred to a plant. I ran into this site by mere chance as I was trying to find the ideal product to tutor my backyard vegetables, and did not know that using netting reduces viruses and fungi. I will try now to go 100% organic!
