Care & Harvest

✂️ Pruning: When Lavender is 6-8 inches, prune back 1/3 of the plant during first growth. From there, you can let the lavender plant grow and flower, only pruning once a year. We recommend checking the roots monthly and trimming any that are brown or extending past the yPod

 

🔎 Plant Health: Aphids and whiteflies are common pests, but you can use our prevention and treatment tricks to keep pests at bay!

 

🌻 Harvest: To harvest Lavender, simply snip off the stems when the buds have formed on the plant and the flowers are just about to open. Generally, you want to harvest the stem of Lavender when half the buds are in bloom. When harvesting, use very sharp pruners or shears because the Lavender stem can be tougher to cut. You can dry your stems by tying and hanging them up in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area. After a few weeks the flowers will be dry and can be gently shaken from the stems into a storage container.
