Oh well, I'm glad I read this though. Would've hated it more to find out the hard way and kill them. My backyard gets full sun, do you think with the humidity it'd be ok if I ever put one in back there? Or should I just forget about it? lol We have sandy soil also that drains really well.

I might try one - if you have full sun and sandy soil. I admit I am still learning about lavender, but from what I understand, full sun and well-drained soil are a must.

Yup, but a raised bed drains easily and you can create any kind of soil you'd like; love will find a way...
