I have a 2-year-old lavender plant in a container that I planted from seed. I understand it does not bloom the first year. This year it put up bloom spikes, and is now blooming - pretty and healthy-looking. But the leaves and flowers have little or no scent! What am I doing wrong?

You have to bust the terpenes glands with your finger to make your Lavender plant release the aroma. Just gently take a leaf or a stem and roll it between your fingers and it will stink for you.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
