Help lavender south Texas too

Mon Nov 28, 2016 7:25 am

I planted a lavender and a yarrow plant that were pretty small earlier this year around July. They grew a lot bigger but only foliage. They have a little room to grow in their pots to grow some more over the winter, but then I Plan on transplanting them to larger containers to force them to problems?
Is the problem they won't flower that they were too small to flower last season?
Or is it because they need to be put into larger pots to flower. They are both already in pretty medium sized pots.

Thanks

I'm not sure why it's not flowering.. is it a young plant or an old plant?

Yes it's a baby plant I bought at a nursery.

Should I dig it up and see the root formation or wait until spring?

Can I post pictures of my plants on here? That way you could have a better understanding of what's afflicting them.

Cool I found the button. Too bad it's such a dark day down here. Lots of rain. First cold front that's lasted for Texas I would say.

What's the temperature in Texas this time of the year? 
I don't think that you should dig it up right now.. wait and see if it catches up. Add nutrients when you water it in the spring and I think it will be fine.

Also here is a Black and Blue Salvia growing with Rue in a medium sized pot. I don't know if those Salvia leaves will make it the winter. I was going to pick them but missed harvest season so I just have decided to leave them. Excuse the horrible picture quality

Thank you! Always inspiring to see what someone else is growing. I think that the Lavender Plant looks good, and think that it will be flowering in the spring. I would not repot it now. It's still a quite small plant so I think it might just need to establish.
Love the Yarrow. Do you grow it for decorations, or do you use it for tea or something else?

I love the way Yarrow tastes in a good salad with some great Strawberry dressing it gives it a lot of diversity. I don't know why more people don't grow yarrow in the winter like winter cabbages.
You can see my little dog has been eating a couple leaves or two. He likes it every once in awhile its funny.
Can you make the leaves into tea? I know you can with the flowers but I am not sure what other uses the leaves can be for. I know in Medieval Times they used Yarrow to stop bleeding on the battlefield.
Thanks for saying my Lavender looks good. I decided to replant her a couple of weeks ago before it got too cold. I too hope it flowers in early summer. When should I be looking out for the flowers of them to come out?
