Yes I have 30 plants in full sun and they are thriving
I planted 4 of these last year. They got huge and the fragrance was wonderful but they did not come back. Disappointed and now I can't find any in stores. Would plant them again if I could find them even though they only last for one summer.
Yes, this product can keep the mosquitos away.
Abigail, Bonnie offers a Elegance Lavender which is a Provence style as well as a Fernleaf Lavender which is the Spanish style. The ones pictured above are of the Elegance.
It's literally 'lavender' colored lavender.
As someone who suffered from anxiety and depression the plant itself did not help my recovery but trying to garden did. Spending the time to do something I had always wanted to do, such as planting, helped encourage me that I can do something. Growing anything has helped me recover; I grew more than just lavender. I also grew peppers, kale, cucumber, tomatoes, and strawberries last year. Seeing them grow gave me a sense of accomplishment, and when they produced enough that I can eat/use gave me even a greater feeling of accomplishment. This feeling over the course of one summer was enough to keep me going for the rest of the year. I'm continuing to grow some in my small window garden this spring. I have some kale and pepper started from seeds as well as some other bonnie plants. Watching them grow and bloom really helps the recovery process. Best of luck
I live in NYC and I believe it's zone 6/7. I've grown them successfully indoors over the summer. I've also seen people grow them successfully in their garden. I don't know how the weather is for your area. For us, we get really hot and sunny summers which is great for the lavender. But I don't expect them to grow in the winter, possibly why it's recommended at Zone 10 (which I believe is like Florida). Best of luck
I keep mine in a contain indoors, last year I had it in a planter, and it isn't that fragrant. When it has a lot of its flowers it's stronger but you would still have to stick your nose to it to smell. I notice the tried buds are more fragrant than the new ones.
Yes! I grow them inside! I put them in a window planter initially last year with some strawberries & kale growing with it together. It was kind of fun but really messy so I took them out and have it in their own container. They grow well when placed in a sunny window. I trimmed them a few times to dry and enjoy its smell before they plant died (because I went on vacation). I bought them again to grow in a terra cota this Spring and it has been doing well (except for 1 that has pests). Good luck!
