Care & Harvest

✂️ Pruning

Once the Lavender reaches a height of 6-8 inches, trim approximately one-third of the plant during its initial growth phase. Subsequently, allow the lavender to grow and bloom freely, necessitating pruning only once annually. It’s advisable to inspect the roots on a monthly basis, trimming away any that appear brown or extend beyond the yPod.

🥬 Harvest

Harvesting Lavender involves snipping the stems as the buds form and are on the verge of opening. Ideally, harvest stems when about half of the buds have bloomed. Employ sharp pruners or shears for harvesting since Lavender stems can be somewhat tough to cut through. For drying, tie and hang the stems in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated space. Once the flowers are dry after a few weeks, they can be easily dislodged from the stems and stored in a container.

Why Grow Lavender Indoors?

Why should you choose to grow lavender in your home? It might be simpler and more beneficial than you think. Let’s explore the numerous advantages.

Lower Prices

By growing your own lavender at home, you can save considerably. Lavender products, whether it’s the plant itself, dried lavender, or lavender-infused items, can come with hefty price tags. With your own indoor lavender garden, you’ll have a constant supply of fresh lavender at a fraction of the cost.

Sustainable Approach

Gardening indoors represents a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to growing plants. By cultivating your own lavender at home, you’re reducing the demand for commercially grown plants that often involve extensive transport and packaging, which contributes to carbon emissions.

Fresh Produce

What Do You Need to Grow Lavender at Home?

With the right resources and knowledge, growing lavender at home can be a gratifying experience. Here’s what you’ll need to get started.

Proper Lighting Conditions

Lavender thrives in a lot of light. Ideally, it should receive at least three to four hours of direct sunlight daily. A south-facing window can be an excellent location for your indoor lavender plant. If sufficient natural light isn’t available, consider using grow lights to provide the light that the lavender needs.

The Right Soil and Pot

Lavender prefers well-drained soil to avoid root rot from developing. A potting mix combined with a small amount of coarse sand can provide the right environment. Choosing the correct pot or container is equally important. Ensure that the pot has enough holes for drainage and is big enough to accommodate the lavender’s growth.

Proper Care and Maintenance

Watering should be done with care, allowing the soil to dry out between watering sessions to prevent overwatering. Also, remember to rotate the pot regularly to ensure the plant receives light evenly. During the growing season, consider fertilizing the lavender once or twice for better growth.

By following these tips and using the right tools, you’re well on your way to growing a lush, fragrant lavender plant indoors. And remember, at Gardyn, we’re here to help you on this journey. Our top-of-the-line indoor gardening solutions are designed to make your gardening experience as easy and enjoyable as possible. Whether you’re an experienced gardener or just starting out, Gardyn is your perfect partner for indoor gardening success.

How to Plant Lavender Indoors

Planting lavender indoors might seem a bit daunting, but it’s a simple process when you have the right guidance. Here are step-by-step instructions to help you get started:

  • Choose a suitable variety of lavender: English lavender and French lavender are two varieties that tend to do well indoors.
  • Select a pot with good drainage to prevent water accumulation and potential root rot. The pot should also be big enough to accommodate the lavender’s growth.
  • Fill the pot with a potting mix combined with a small amount of coarse sand. This ensures that the soil drains well and mimics the natural growing conditions of lavender.
  • Plant the lavender in the pot, placing it in the center and covering the roots with soil. Make sure that the crown of the plant (where the plant meets the root) is slightly above the soil surface.
  • Place the pot in a location with a lot of light. A south-facing window is ideal, but if sufficient natural light isn’t available, consider using grow lights.
  • Water the plant sparingly. Let the soil dry out between watering sessions to prevent overwatering, which can lead to root rot.
  • Regularly rotate the pot to ensure the plant receives light evenly.

By following these steps, you’ll be well on your way to growing a healthy, vibrant lavender plant right in your own home. As always, at Gardyn, we’re here to help. With our advanced indoor gardening solutions and wealth of knowledge, we can support you throughout your indoor gardening journey. Whether it’s selecting the right lavender variety or providing the optimal pot and potting mix, Gardyn makes indoor gardening a breeze.

How to Care for Lavender Indoors

Caring for your indoor lavender plant involves several key factors. Let’s delve into how you can ensure your lavender stays healthy and vibrant.

Light and Air Circulation

Lavender plants require a lot of light. Place your indoor lavender near a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough hours of direct sunlight. In case of insufficient natural light, grow lights can be a great solution. Moreover, proper air circulation is vital for the plant’s health. Regularly rotate the pot to ensure even exposure to light and air.

Watering and Feeding

Overwatering is a common mistake in lavender care. Allow the potting soil to dry out between watering sessions to avoid waterlogging and root rot. During the growing season, consider feeding your lavender plant once or twice with a balanced fertilizer to promote growth.

Harvesting and Using Lavender

Harvesting your own home-grown lavender and using it in various ways can be a rewarding experience. Let’s explore how and when to harvest lavender, and some of its uses.

When and How to Harvest Lavender

The best time to harvest lavender is in the spring and summer when the flowers are in full bloom. The buds should be plump and colorful, but not fully open. To harvest, simply cut the stems about a third from the plant, early in the morning when the essential oils are most potent.

Using Lavender in Cooking

Lavender lends a delicate floral note to dishes. Use your harvested lavender in baking or to make infused oils, lavender tea, or even lavender lemonade. Remember, a little goes a long way in cooking, so use it sparingly.

Using Lavender for Crafts and Home Fragrance

From crafting lavender sachets and wreaths to making lavender-scented candles and soaps, there are countless ways to use your harvested lavender. Dried lavender also makes a wonderful home fragrance, helping to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere.

Pruning and Harvesting

Pruning your lavender plant promotes a healthy, bushy growth. In spring and summer, trim back the plant by about a third to encourage new growth. Harvesting the lavender flowers is best done in the morning when the essential oils are most potent.
