The Q&A Archives: Timing of Lavender Bloom

Question: I ordered some lavender plants and planted them in the spring of '97. Of the 4 or 5 surviving and seemingly healthy plants, they are still green. I didn't expect much flowering (if any) last year but I thought they might flower this year. Is it too early for them to flower? The leaves smell luscious, but no blue flowers yet...I'm eager to see them.

Answer: Lavender (Lavandula) will bloom sometime from June through August if planted in full sun. Enjoy the bloom to come!
