Why is my Spanish lavender plant dying?


Answer by  rubikscubefreak (17)

Spanish lavender is not a very winter-hardy plant, so you may live in an area that's simply too cold for your plant to thrive. Also, you should prune your plant after it finishes blooming every year.

Lavender plants thrive best under "benign neglect." They don't need much fertilizing, if any--perhaps a little dilute fertilizer in spring. Be careful not to over-water lavenders as they do just fine in dry conditions. They are prone to rot and get fungal infections, so do not mulch the trunk of the plant.

If your plant is young, it will need to be watered more than the adults. Check for insects or fungus. Spanish lavender thrives with neglect, and don't overwater.

First, Spanish lavender is a perennial it may be too old so it starts too wither and die. Second, try testing for nematodes or other pest in the soil. And lastly, keep it in a sunny area and avoid frequent watering to avoid drowning the plant.

Perhaps you are watering your Spanish lavender too often. After established these plants require little watering. You also might want to check that the soil is draining well. If the soil is not draining, the roots are getting too much water. Spanish lavender is drought proof so dampness can kill your plants. Perhaps your plants are not getting enough sun.
