While it’s tempting to purchase lavender plants at any time, your best bet is spring. The weather in October and November can be unpredictable, especially during cold or wet winters. Likewise, summer heat can damage the delicate roots of these plants that are vulnerable to hot temperatures. If you live in an area where summers are super hot, consider purchasing a late blooming variety of lavender so you don’t have to worry about sunburned leaves. Also keep in mind that there are some varieties that flower only once every few years while others will bloom for multiple seasons if they get enough water and sunlight. Lavenders should always be planted near a sunny window but won’t thrive when placed too close to reflective surfaces like glass doors or mirrors – this traps too much heat inside the house!
