Lavender in a window box
I am having difficulty growing lavender in my window box. I have 3 plants in a zinc container on a window sill at the front of my house that look very sorry for themselves!! The container is approx 90cm long, 15cm wide and 20cm deep. The box gets sunlight throughout the majority of the day, is in normal soil with shingle drainage at the bottom of the container. I've been watering fairly often in this hot weather but the plants look straggly and leaves are brown and dry near the base of the plant. The flowers are dying off now and am too scared to prune in case this is the death of the plants! Please help as this is the second time I have tried to grow lavender in this box and I really want to succeed!
