Lavandula angustifolia prefers average to dry, well-drained soil in full sun. Excess winter moisture may cause stem rot. Hot, humid summers may cause leaves to blacken and plant to deteriorate. Prune flower stalks to encourage more blooms. In spring, prune plants to desired size or to the old woody stems, to promote vigourous growth and keep a dense, compact habit. Please note that lavenders should never be pruned harder than half way down the stems. Because of its strong scent, plants can be added throughout the garden to deter insects. In mild climates lavenders remains evergreen.
