To water or not to water?!

jlforesterjlforester Posts: 2
hey guys. So I planted some lavender last Saturday and one of them has started wilting. All the others look fine though. Just need some advice, do I water it? Or has it had to much water? I watered them when I planted and the day after but that’s it and it hasn’t rained.  They are in full sun and I think my soil is pretty dry/well draining. 

Thanks :)

    It looks to me like it needs a drink.

    Lavender likes dry heat once it is established.  But most plants need to be kept moist when they are newly planted.  Once you see new growth, you need only water it in dry spells.

    I think it was too early to plant them out. The nights are very cold and they are heat loving plants.
