Lavandula stoechas subsp. Pedunculata can be planted in flower pots, window-boxes or in the garden. Prefer the French Lavender as a pot plant? Choose a large pot with holes in the base. Cover the bottom with pot shards or a layer of hydro pellets. Part fill with fresh potting compost and plant the French Lavender at the correct depth. Fill the pot with compost and press firmly down. Water your French Lavender immediately after planting. Line a porous pot with plastic or use a plastic inner pot in order to prevent evaporation. This will stop the root ball drying out too quickly. Or, plant your Lavandula stoechas subsp. Pedunculata directly into the garden. Improve the soil by adding a little potting compost.
Water your Lavandula stoechas subsp. Pedunculata regularly to avoid the root ball drying out. If you regularly remove the spent flowers you will encourage a second flowering. For an abundance of flowers we recommend adding plant food throughout the summer when watering. After the flowering season has finished prune the dead stems, and again in March. Do not prune too far back into any dead wood.
