Rosemary and Lavender - Knowledgebase Question

Cedar Hill, Mi
Question by grbgmail

I have a small yard in a river bottom area. The soil is rich an everything else does great, but when I plant rosemary and lavender, they die within a very short time. They get full sun and the ground drains well. What am I doing wrong?

Excellent soil drainage and lots of sunshine are usually all rosemary and lavender require to thrive. They like soils on the dry side so perhaps you're killing them with kindness by watering too frequently? If you plant them again, be extra careful with your watering.
