Ok, so bought a 6' pot of lavender last spring (the card had fallen out so I don't know what variety I have) and while it has gotten MUCH bigger, it hasn't bloomed once. The leaves are healthy, a beautiful color and very fragrant, I haven't had any dying off at all but not a single stalk with flowers on it - not even stalks! Just more leaves.
Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled that I have a healthy plant but I'd really love it to bloom. I potted it in a 10" pot in the spring and it lived on my deck until about two weeks ago when all my herb pots came inside. 2 broad leaf basil, a small leaf basil, 1 oregano, 1 thyme, 1 sage, a strawberry (no fruit this year on that little guy either) a rosemary and my Meyer lemon - I haven't had lemons either. But that's not dropping leaves, is getting TONS of flowers but no fruit. My herbs have given me a good harvest and everything but my sage and my lavender have gone to flower at least once.
So, any thoughts on why I haven't had any flowers out of the lavender? I'm not so worried about the sage, it's a little spindly but the harvest has been good.
