Hey everyone!!

I have an english lavender plant outside in a large pot... it tends to get droopy and then I'll water it and it livens back up again, but everything I read online tells me that lavender does not need much water and sometimes none. Any insight?

yes it is in a pot. I know this is not polite, but someone must point to the depths of the soil vs pot differences, one major issue being potting soil elevated above the surface of the planet earth.

We water ours in pots every day (evening)...full sun in morning and semi shade in the afternoons..We use ordinary compost...and they thrive with some granular food and water in Epsom Salt in solution every other weekend

Every day? I am going down to the methadone clinic for a break.

I always want to free range my plants i.e. plant them in soil so that they can come into contact with the goodness in the soil. No point confining them to pots and making them anaemic.

I too love to put my plants in the ground. As I get more proficient at gardening I push the limits. As you walk through my woods I want it to have lots of surprises.

You will, count your blessings and heirlooms to your posterity! So envious of your growing condition. I googled a 3-bedroom house with a stream! Hahaha and they all ended up in Wales or Dumfries and Galloway!

Love those places, but I have a son who needs to find a job!

Agree totally! I am never very confident with pot grown stuff. Hard to gauge if there is too much or too little water. More varied nutrients in my clay soil. I always admire people showing off their pot grown flowers ..
