Question by dellsd

How much sun does a lavender plant need? Mine seems to be drooping. Should I feed it? It is in small pot.

Lavender grows best in full sunshine, but sunshine that directly hits the pot can literally bake the roots. So try to shade the pot but expose the plant to full sunshine. Lavender doesn't require feeding and you wouldn't want to feed a plant that is already showing signs of stress. Just water when the top of the soil gets dry and find a way to shade the pot from direct sunshine and I think your plant will perk right up. Hope so!
