How often should i water my lavender plants in hot weather?

Thank you all for the advice...much appreciated



not as much as you might imagine. they are Mediterranean plants and their silvery leaf helps them cope in the hot Mediterranean sun.

I do my pots when its hot like this about every 3 days. the ones in the ground I don't water at all.

Seaburn girl thank you for your reply. I'm in Somerset, near Pilton, Glastonbury. We have had hot weather...its all rather unexpected.

Unfortunately, we get it a great deal hotter than you do in the UK and for longer, and I don't think I have EVER watered my numerous lavender plants except when they were tiny cuttings - don't ever be tempted to feed them, either. They are very happy with maximum amounts of neglect.
