2- Make sure that the soil drains the water appropriately, as water deposition in it is the enemy of lavender that causes root rot, so the soil should be light and well ventilated to improve soil drainage. You can mix it with building sand before planting.

3- Checking the soil pH acidity, as lavender grows in alkaline soil and the appropriate level for soil is between 3-7. If necessary, you can increase the alkalinity of the soil by adding a little lemon from 2 to 3 lemons per foot of soil.
