difficulty with lavender
I have never had luck growing lavender in my garden or in a pot. It always does this thing where it gradually turns brown and dies one stem at a time. My guess is too much water. What is the best way to tell when lavender needs water, or does it never really need water? I love the smell, flavor, and its ability to attract bees. Are there any lavender better suited for a humid climate? I live in northwest Philadelphia, which is zone 6b. My garden is full sun, with reflective heat, and frequent breeze, although we get quite hot and humid. We also get once or twice a week downpours in the summer.
