Lavender plants are hardy in zones 5B through 8 and are generally considered to be low-maintenance plants, even in winter. To care for them during the colder months, some winter protection should be given by applying a thich layer of mulch over the plants after your first hard freeze. Use straw, shredded leaves or pine boughs to protect the plants from harsh winter winds. As long as the soil drains quickly the plants will be happy all winter and will spring to life when the weather warms.
