Hey, everyone! With everything starting to warm up early, it's got me itching to set up this year's garden. I've never had a particularly green thumb, but since I'm setting up raised garden beds right next to the house I figure it should give me an advantage. I've grown plenty of herbs and veggies through the years with mixed success, but I can never seem to keep lavender alive. The seeds never germinate, the seedlings all die before I can transplant them. Last year I bought some already flowering into a small bush, but once planted it never really got any bigger. It's so frustrating because while I've bought dried lavender online, I want my own, pesticide free lavender. I'm on the border of gardening zone 6/7, and have a south facing garden if that helps. Thank you!
