Planting out lavender

I've been growing lavender in pots this year with a view to planting them into the garden for next year. How late this season could I plant them out or would it be better to keep them potted through til next spring?

They're angustifolia, from seed last year.

  • I've looked at that myself and I've read that spring is the better time to plant lavender.

    Thanks Fleurisa. 

  • Hi nut cutlet and fleurisa,

    I have grown  lavender in pots this year too....but very late, they are only about two inches high so I think I will plant them out next year....how do I over winter them , where and what temps...have you got any idea?

  • I overwintered my small plants in my unheated wall greenhouse, they need to be protected from excessive winter wet.

    Hi Flowerbird, mine were the size of yours last year and I kept them in the cold GH. I shall probably do the same this year in case it's another of those very wet winters

  • Ok, thanx, will do all this.

    Thanks all. I thought that would be the answer. I just hoped I might be able to get them out there.
