How to Winterize your Lavender

Lavender originated in the sunny, hot and dry Mediterranean which means it can be difficult to keep it alive over our colder Canadian winter months. Our farm in the Okanagan is in growing zone 5b and even we have years where we experience loss, so gardeners in cooler growing zones will have a much tougher time. But don't despair! We made this short video with a couple of tips on how you can give your lavender plants their best chance of survival over the winter.
