Organic Goodwin Creek Lavender

Organic Goodwin Creek Lavender

Strong, drought-enduring, silver-foliaged beauty

Goodwin Creek Grey Lavender (Lavandula x ginginsii) is a robust, long-lasting hybrid with drought tolerance. Featuring silvery-grey foliage, this dense shrub boasts soft, toothed leaves. Lavender-blue flowers bloom on variable-length spikes from summer to winter in milder climates. Thriving in heat and full sun, it's ideal for containers, borders, or rock gardens, adding beauty and resilience to any landscape.

Sustainably grown in 2.75" pots

Selecting a Planting Location

Choose a location that receives full sunlight for at least 6 to 8 hours a day. Good air circulation is also important to prevent fungal diseases. Ensure the soil is well-drained, as lavender plants are susceptible to root rot in waterlogged conditions. Goodwin Creek Lavender is adaptable to various soil types but thrives in slightly alkaline, sandy or loamy soil with a pH of 6.0 to 7.0.

Planting Goodwin Creek Lavender

Spring or fall is the best time to plant Goodwin Creek Lavender. Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and amend the soil with compost if necessary. Gently remove the plant from its container and loosen the roots before placing it in the hole. Backfill with soil and tamp down gently to remove air pockets. Space multiple plants at least 12 to 18 inches apart to allow for proper airflow and growth.

Watering

After planting, water the lavender thoroughly to help establish its roots. Once established, water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's important to strike a balance and avoid waterlogged conditions.

Fertilizing

Lavender is a relatively low-maintenance plant and does not require heavy fertilization. Apply a balanced fertilizer sparingly in the spring, if desired, to promote healthy growth. Avoid fertilizers high in nitrogen, as they can encourage excessive foliage growth at the expense of flowers.

Pruning

Regular pruning is essential to maintain the shape and vigor of Goodwin Creek Lavender. Prune in early spring or after flowering to remove spent blooms and shape the plant. Avoid cutting into old wood, as lavender plants may not regrow from woody stems. Instead, focus on trimming back new growth.

Pest and Disease Management

Goodwin Creek Lavender is generally resistant to pests and diseases, especially when grown in well-drained soil and ample sunlight. However, be on the lookout for common lavender pests such as aphids, spider mites, and whiteflies. These can be managed with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Ensure good air circulation around the plants to prevent fungal diseases like powdery mildew.

Harvesting and Uses

Goodwin Creek Lavender typically blooms from late spring to early summer. Harvest the flowers when they are fully open but before they begin to fade. The flowers can be used fresh or dried for culinary purposes, crafting, or for their aromatic properties in potpourri, sachets, and essential oil extraction.

Winter Care

In colder climates, provide winter protection for Goodwin Creek Lavender by mulching around the base of the plant to insulate the roots. Prune back any dead or damaged growth in the spring to encourage new growth and maintain the plant's vigor.

By following these guidelines, you can cultivate healthy and thriving Goodwin Creek Lavender plants that will add beauty, fragrance, and versatility to your garden or landscape. Enjoy the beauty and benefits of this wonderful herb!

Guarantee

We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, potted or bare root trees, vegetable crowns, etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as ""Perishable"" immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic). Because some perishable items can deteriorate very quickly, we cannot accept any claims beyond the 3-day time frame as it becomes too difficult to determine if these items were delivered in substandard condition, or if they turned into such substandard condition because of having been improperly cared for or stored once delivered.
