Lavender grows well in Quebec when the right varieties are selected, meaning, the hardiest ones. Snow can even become its ally and serve as a layer of insulation, protecting it from winter. A lot of love and hard work carry the promise of bright, aromatic blossoms for six to eight weeks in the summer.

Growing at home

At the time of planting

Lavender thrives in all types of soil. Whether the soil is rich or poor in nutrients, it will adapt to its environment with a little bit of help.

Lavender does not like to get its feet wet. If your parcel of land has a slight incline to it, water will drain itself. If you fear that water will accumulate at the foot of the plant, build a small mound of earth when planting. Water will then drain naturally and easily.

Similarly, you can add a few rocks at the base of the plant to facilitate drainage. Stones will also capture heat from the earth and redistribute it to the plant.

A small amount of watering is required at the time of planting.

During the summer

With the exception of extremely hot days, your lavender plant does not need to be watered.

It is best to harvest lavender flowers when the buds are 60% open.

Never cut down more than one-third of the plant (in terms of height). You must also not cut into what is known as the “wood” of the plant, which is lavender stem that is more than one year old and has turned brown. The base of the plant is the source of new growth and must be protected.

In the fall

To protect your plants from the winter elements, use a pail to cover them.

Never cover your plant with dead leaves, mulch or an object such as a cone.

Remember that snow is a good insulator for lavender, which is great news for Quebec. So you must be sure to have enough snow to cover your plant.

during the winter

Your lavender plant is dormant, leave it alone!

Spring time

 

You will notice that this is the most thankless season for lavender! As soon as the snow melts, the plant is green and looks healthy, it's happiness! As the days go by, the more it grates and its pace leaves something to be desired. He almost looks dead. People often make the mistake of pruning it off the ground or tearing it off. No, you just have to be a little patient. Lavender takes its time to wake up, it must be left until mid-June before worrying. With the arrival of warmer days, the plant should start to bloom and soon, bloom.
