Winterizing Lavender

H

Question:

Hi, Do I need to take extra precautions to protect my lavender over the winter, or will it winter ok here?

Thanks Dylan

—Dyan

Answer:

Hi Dyan,

Lavender isn’t considered a Minnesota hardy perennial, so we usually recommend taking extra care to make sure the plant is planted in the ground, not in a container, and covered with several inches of insulation.  The recommended cover is clean leaf or grass mulch, or a hay or straw cover.  (And, since the plant isn’t too tall, try cover the plant to the top.)  The best time to cover is after we’ve had a hard frost and the night temperatures are below freezing, around mid November.  Good luck!
