Dying Lavender - Please Help!

sorioldSeptember 3, 2013


We planted approximately 20 lavender plants 2 months ago and everything looked great at frst. We are using a drip system and I have changed the drippers to 1 gallon emitters rathen than 2 gallons. Also, our soil is 70 sand and almost 30% clay. Slowly but surely it seems that all of the lavender are dying and I would REALLY appreciate any guidance some of you more experienced gardeners and lavender enthusiasts have.

Thank you very much for you help in advance and please see below for the damage.

Sorry, I can't help with the problem but I would suggest to take cuttings from plants that are still alive. Lavender roots nicely. So you won't be at such a great loss. The plants that are looking bad can be dug out to look at their roots to see what is wrong and if they still can be saved. Good luck.
