It is always a joy to see plants grow from seeds into plantlings. This particular lavender is now a plantling and ready for her new home, so we got her all prepared for the trip. For this lavender plant we did the following:
- Picked up a clay pot that she would have plenty of room to grow in. she can stay in this pot, but if one puts her in the ground she will probably grow bigger. We chose a glazed clay pot with a bottom drain hole. The clay is a natural material. The glaze will keep moisture in and reduce the amount of water needed to water lavender. The drain hole at the bottom will keep one from over watering any plant.
- Filled the pot with organic soil especially since she is edible
- Transplanted her from her old pot to her new pot
- Gave her a healthy dose of water, although she likes little water, so she could settle into her new home and recover from all the disruption of being transplanted
