Liz,

Lavendar needs sun so indoors would not work. It is native to the Mediterranean and therefore likes a well drained site with moderate to warm temperatures. In the sultry, humid heat of a southern summer it can melt, especially if kept to wet. Build it a raised mound using compost mixed with your native soil. Water periodically to keep the soil a little moist, but take care not to allow it to stay soggy wet. Give it full sun or a little afternoon shade.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
