Growing lavender in East Texas clay
Some of you have asked about growing lavender in clay. We have over 600 plants that are doing quite well in the Texas clay. The key to our success is propagating the soil correctly. Since lavender loves rocky, dry soil we use a mixture of gravel, sand and sandy lome to make a home for our plants. We make a mound with the mixture so that the rain water won't stand around the root base.

Where in East TExas are you located? Love the fragrance of lavender.
My, that's a lot of lavender! Please let me at'em so I can bury my nose in them, rub and stroke them and just feel happy.
Gee your lavender looks better than mine and I don't even have clay soil!!!
Now it has become clear - PURPLE Ranch. The lavender looks great and healthy.
