The Q&A Archives: Growing Lavander in a Container indoors

Question: Is is possible to grow lavander in a container inside or in a container outside? If I can grow it in a container outstide, what will happen when I bring it in for the winter. I am in zone five and I have a lots of sun my windows face west.

Answer: It is not easy to grow lavender indoors, but it can be done. Lavender is a high light plant and it may be hard to supply sufficient light indoors during the summer. You will know they need more light if the plants grow thin and stringy and reach towards the source of light. In the winter the plants also need a cool rest at temperatures close to freezing during the night and kept barely just moist. Soggy winters kill them, as do bone dry ones.
