We tried growing lavender this year and it apparently does not like it here. Maybe next year. Happy Sunday Lynette. Allan
Hi Allan, I don’t know if you saw Anneli’s response to you below. I agree that it maybe got too cold. You could try mulching it, but I didn’t have any luck growing it in Medicine Hat because of the chinooks and then the occasional -40. Too bad, because lavender keeps the mossies down.
it probably froze over the winter – maybe?
Yes, that was my experience when I lived in southern Alberta, and the chinooks and -40 periods didn’t help. I tried mulching but that didn’t work either.
You need a lot of mulch to counteract that kind of cold.
Haha! 😁 I was young and hopeful! (Or unrealistic, maybe?)
It’s good to be hopeful.
I love lavender too. I should put some in my garden.
Lavender also helps to keep mosquitoes away. They don’t like it, so having it in your garden is a win-win!
And the scent of lavender is lovely, too. Not overwhelming, just mildly noticeable.
