My Lavender Is Dying I Think
Answered by: Inge Poot
Question from: Jeannie Lemercier
Posted on: May 13, 2008

I bought a lavender plant & repotted it but it seems to be wilting. Can you please advise me as to what I must do? I live in UK and I have the plant at the front of my house.

Lavenders hate root disturbance and can take a long time to recover from repotting. I would recommend potting on whenever possible, rather than repotting into completely new medium. Make sure you don’t over water so that the dreaded rot won’t set in. Also lavenders do not like strong fertilizer- it kills their roots. Make sure it has an excellently draining medium and after it is no longer wilting gradually expose to full sun.
