My mom gave me some lavender plants.
They were planted in well draining soilless mix, and exposed to lots of sun (and heat Zone 11).
I water them sparingly and keep the soil from becoming too wet for prolonged periods of time (read that lavender hates getting its roots soaked). I water every other day when the soil becomes dry.
I have had them for 3-4 months now but have noticed them to have lost vigor : they're not of a healthy green color but somewhat pale green to almost brown grey, with the stems turning dark brown as well.
Are they a goner?
What am I doing wrong?
Please help. I had no success growing them from seeds for a year hence they were given to me; first time herb gardener here.
