A flower that adds colour, fragrance, repels insects, is good for your beauty regimen all at one go; that’s lavender for you.

Care Instructions For Growing Lavender Plant Indoors

  • Maintenance of plant :

    Place it on a windowsill or a ledge to get the plant to grow as near to the sun as possible. Also bear in mind that to avoid root rot from setting in, the pot for the plant needs to be only an inch or two larger than the rootball itself.


    Thrives in bright sunlight.


    Ensure that the bottom of the pot contains an inch or two of limestone gravel topped with a basic soilless mix. Blending a tablespoon of lime into the osil will give that alkaline edge, the plant needs.


    Water sparingly and pull back during winter months; growing lavender in a terracotta pot would be your best bet.
