WE MOVED - OUR NEW LOCATION IS JOELTON, TN
If the baby lavender is left inside the box it will not survive.
Immediately upon arrival –
Remove the pot from the bag (untie the ribbon and slip off its little silky pajamas). Water your plant and set it in a sunny window. Allow it to stretch and get some air + sunshine.
If this baby is a gift continuing to someone else ~ still follow the instructions above. It is easy to put the little baby’s silky pajamas back on, place in the original white box, and wrap for the final delivery.
Even if you will be gifting this plant to someone else ~ it will need immediate care while with you. Please do not leave it in the box.
Baby Grosso Lavender needs a sunny location. Also ~ this baby has a full-size maturity potential of 30-32 inches! So please re-pot within 7 to 10 days of receiving it.
Continue Growing over winter. A 4-inch pot or larger, with good drainage (be sure the pot has holes) , potting soil, (nothing that holds moisture - and nothing with a lot of fertilizer) full sun, and watering gently two to three times per week - will give you a heallthy plant to bring outside in the Spring. These do best outdoors, they are not an indoor full size species.
Once the last frost has passed, bring your Grosso Lavender outside. It will need about a week to harden off (get used to the outdoors), so short hours of direct sun are best increasing to full sun after a few days.
Your Grosso can be potted into a larger patio pot or planted in an herb garden. Allow it plenty of space for ventilation, give it good drainage (! most important), and plenting of sunshine, keeping in mind it will be 30-32 inches when mature.
Lavandula intermedia 'Grosso' is a classic French hybrid Lavender grown for its fragrant dark blue flower spikes and vigorous growth habit. With nice wide gray-green foliage, 'Grosso' is a large grower and blooms heavily providing an ample harvest of flowers for lavender wands, sachets, and culinary use. This is an outstanding honeybee plant providing mid-summer flowers after the English lavender finishes flowering in early summer.
