Message: I live in Eastern KS. I have been ill for the last 5 yrs, but during last 3yrs I've worked steadily to improve the gardens� allure. I'm dealing with poor, clay soil so each time I transplant a big clay spot is replaced with garden soil, and give the new plant roots some care too. Following, the spot is mulched with peat...blah, blah. Blue Lavender, where should I plant it? I place plants that say full sun in the sun but they wind up dying even with daily care. I have an area on the N side, receiving a lot of in-direct light. My Coleus thrived there. Two big windows are right there so ready to receive the fragrance. Please someone with our strange KS summers (they'll be by the foundation-no worries winters) I just want a gardener to give me a 'green' thumbs-up.
Big Q; I received my stock (mail order) and the Blue Lavender looks rather sad. Since Lavender is a perennial, and the roots look ok, will it be strong enough to transplant with care to bloom in 2012�right? I hope so because that is what I did. Well, it is great that perennials can always be moved! Thanks.

Message: Hi, I have lavander in a pot that I had outside over the summer. When the purple flowers died, I cut them off and brought the plant inside and havent watered it at all. Im not sure if I should cut the stems right back, or leave them and or put the plant outside, to ensure it flowers again next year. Can you help? thank you.

Message: My lavender is beautiful, very prolific, with lots of bloom. But, underneath it is extremely woody. When pruning time arrives I am going to be left with these woody branches,which no doubt will bear fruit next year.
I hate to dig them up, but I feel it is time they moved out for younger brothers or sisters to take their place.
Today I have visited the nursery and purchased five new pots of lavender. Should I bite the bullet and dig my friends up. What is the alternative?
