2 yr old lavender plants

Jackie,Because of unsure about this new site late in getting to you. You can move any plant at almost any time as long as you always do the old 2 bucket routine. First give the plant a good soaking before you dig it out. Then dig it out with as big a root ball as possible. Always have the hole at its new home dug and put in a bucket of water to soak in whilst digging it out. Then after planting soak it again.
Also if after it has flowered you cut it to the lowest green the lavender bush will not get tall and leggy. Lavender likes it hot and sunny, you can actually grow it from seed, I have. I wish you luck with it, lavender is my favourite shrub.
