How to take care of Lavender angustifolia Munstead 14 cm
The most important factor when growing lavender is to use a well-drained limey soil (alkaline) and little or no fertilizer. Lavender angustifolia Munstead 14 cm thrive best in sunny locations. Problems usually arise because the soil is unhealthy. Avoid chemicals and fertilizers that kill the beneficial organisms in the soil. Place in the soil so that the first green leaves only just show above the soil. Water well after planting. Let them dry out a little before soaking it again. Pruning is necessary to extend the life of the plant. Trim lightly in autumn immediately after flowering and in mid spring cut back straggly plants to promote bushy new growth. Cut back to about a third of the grey-leaved stems. Lavenders that are not pruned have a tendency to become woody in the centre. L. stoechas, L. angustifolia and L. x intermedia may be pruned back by 1/3 to ½.
