Lavender are very easy to grow, plant in well drained soil in full sun, once established they are drought tolerant.
Its best to prune them in late summer after they have finished flowering, this keeps they compact and attractive. Don’t cut back into the woody stems as they don’t always break new growth there that easily.
They don’t even require feeding.
