Lavender topiaries need plenty of bright, direct sunlight to thrive. Place them in a sunny windowsill or outside in a sunny spot.
Watering: Lavender topiaries prefer well-drained soil that is allowed to dry out between waterings. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, and be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot.
Fertilize your lavender topiary once a month during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer. Avoid fertilizing during the winter months.
Lavender topiaries can be affected by pests such as spider mites and aphids. Keep an eye out for any signs of infestation and treat promptly. Lavender topiaries can also be affected by fungal diseases, so make sure to avoid overwatering and provide good air circulation.
In northern climates, bring plants indoors to overwinter. Prune the plant after blooming. If you wish for it to grow into a small tree, simply remove the spent blooms and clean out any dead or diseased wood. For a hedge, sheer the plant to the size desired. Bonsai and topiary forms take more training, which should be started in infancy.
