Rated 3 out of 5 by from wonderful plant for fragrance. Lasts through winter in mild climes.: Love this plant along with Rosemary. Only problem I have is that if your potting soil has a lot of peat add some sand because as the season progresses the peat compacts and acts a sponge very detrimental to lavender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attempted a garden of lavender for the first time last year and they grew beautifully. However, please know that lavender does NOT require daily watering once it is established well in your garden. I lost a few of them, because I assumed they needed daily watering like the rest of my garden, since the temps were reaching 85-90 degrees F. However, when I went on a 5-day vacation, I thought for sure they would all be dead since no one watered them. But guess what? To my surprise, ALL the lavender plants not only survived, but THRIVED. They looked even better after five days of no watering. My point? Don't overwater the lavender. They prefer some dryness. I began watering them every 3-4 days and they grew quite well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time ever growing lavender-- supposed to help repel mosquitoes, which is the reason why I'm attempting it! Along with rosemary, catnip, and lemon thyme. :) Love the smell either way! ;) Wish me luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Growing lavender for an unusual reason: DEER avoid it like the plague! We were "feeding" deer during the winter with our landscape shrubs. Lavender's fragrance (also Sage and Rosemary) repel the deer. The benefits are awesome - beautiful plants, great fragrance, and a natural way to repel shrub eating deer! What more could a girl ask for?
