Lavender is also known as a perfume plant. It has a developed root system and high requirements for soil. It is suitable for growth in fertile soils with deep, loose and well-ventilated soils, and loves soils rich in silicon and calcium. Generally, it is not acidic or alkaline. Planting in soil is not conducive to its growth and development.
Reasonable watering is one of the lavender cultivation methods and precautions. Generally, lavender does not have high requirements for water. Watering should be appropriate except for the flowering and fruiting periods, and sufficient water should be given during spring, and appropriate in summer. And not too much, in winter with sufficient snow to maintain its normal moisture.
Lavender in different periods requires different fertilizers. For 1-2 year old seedlings, potassium and phosphorus fertilizers are the main fertilizers. For lavenders that are more than 3 years old, nitrogen or phosphorus fertilizers are the most common. Fertilizers should be mainly organic fertilizers. Apply every 3 to 4 weeks to facilitate normal growth and development.
Lavender is mostly grown outdoors, and it loves a sunny growing environment, especially during the development period. The daily light time should not be less than 4 hours. It is best not to leave it in the dark for too long, otherwise it will lead to poor development of lavender and premature aging.
Lavender is susceptible to leaf spot disease, especially in July and August, when the disease is in high incidence. The main manifestations are wilting branches and leaves, and the color of the leaves is dim. At this time, we need to spray the lavender with Bordeaux solution at a ratio of 1: 200 to prevent or replace Mori zinc can be sprayed at 500-800 times.
