Why is my friend’s lavender plant growing but not flowering?
Can anyone give some advice as it is growing but has not flowered for the last 3 years



Possibly in too shady a position, or maybe it has been over-fed - where is it being grown?

hi Ilex its being grown under a tree.
Do you think this is the problem ?

Hi Duddy,

Yes I would say that is why the Lavender isn't flowering. They are Mediterranean in origin and really do need as sunny and warm a location as possible with nothing shading them overhead.
