Planting type: Direct sowing or transplanting
Cropping season: Lavender is typically planted in spring after the last frost or in early fall. It takes about 2-3 years for lavender plants to reach their full maturity and produce abundant flowers.
Spacing: Space lavender plants approximately 30 to 60 centimeters apart, allowing enough room for air circulation and growth.
Depth of planting: Plant lavender seeds or seedlings at a depth of about 6-8 millimeters in the soil.
Germination period: Lavender seeds generally germinate within 21 to 40 days under optimal conditions.
Hours of sunlight required: Lavender requires at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and flowering.
Watering: Lavender is a drought-tolerant plant and prefers well-drained soil. It is important to avoid overwatering, as excessive moisture can lead to root rot. Water lavender sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.

Lavender essential oil, derived from the flowers, is used in perfumes, soaps, and aromatherapy. Medicinally, lavender is known for its calming and relaxing effects.
Problems of lavender cultivation:
Pests: Common pests that can affect lavender include aphids, spider mites, and root knot nematodes. Regular inspection and appropriate pest control measures may be necessary to prevent infestations.
Diseases: Lavender is generally resistant to most diseases. However, overwatering or poorly drained soil can make the plant susceptible to root rot and fungal diseases. Ensuring proper soil drainage and avoiding excessive moisture is important to prevent these issues.
Pruning: Regular pruning helps maintain the shape and vigor of lavender plants. It is recommended to prune lavender in early spring or after flowering to encourage bushier growth and prevent legginess.
