basic help with lavender and rosemary
I recently moved to Austin from the northeast, and can't seem to keep plants alive anymore. In the northeast I had such a green thumb!
I've killed 2 rosemary and 2 lavender plants so far. I potted them in a store bought potting mix with added perlite and my own vermicompost. The top of the soil seems to dry out within a day or two. I've tried watering more (1-2 times a week) and less (once every 2 weeks) but still no luck.
My current lavender started dying from the bottom up. The leaves turned a mottled grayish brown. But they are soft and flexible, not brittle and dry.
Am I watering too much? Not enough? Is there too much sun?
