hi hows it going,

can someone please help. i have a spainish lavender that is growing from only one branch. iv had it since about may but no other branches have started to go off in the other direction. i can't find any information on how to prune it to encourage growth on the other side so its not lobsided. can someone please giive me some advice, i have the picture, not a great camera though.

the other thing is that some of the leaves are going and and most of the others have white circles on them. research that i found said it might be due to root rot, is the any way to tell if this is the problem without taking it out of the pot. i had it outside, but brought it in and put it on the window sill would this help to maybe dry the roots. or are is there anything else i can do to save it?

oh i have it beside some other lavender, would this be any problem, maybe whats wrong with it might spread

Hi,
Just come across this. Spanish lavender is a martyr to root rots and is just not very easy to grow. I have lost 2 already (but have bought another). If it survives to Spring, you can cut it right back and it will sprout away. Getting thru the winter is the problem. Wet wet wet.

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply. I have it inside sitting on the window sill so whatever watering it gets its me that's doing it. It hasn't seemed to got any bigger, or its leaves haven't seemed to change and it hasn't wilted really.

I'll take a look at its roots tomarow. anything i should look out for on them?

Thanks,

Lauren

Hi,
No, not really. There is nothing you can do at this stage except water as little as possible and it should get thru to Spring.
Good luck.
