I just got some. Wondering if there were any tips. Is it going to grow out of contol in the ground or is it best to pot it?

L. angustifolia is the one to use for culinary purposes: Two most popular varieties are Munstead or Hidcote. They are referred to as 'sweet lavender'.

The intermedias-lavandins- and dentata are best for fragrance and craft use. Lavandins have the longest stems and color holds well.

Don't fertilize - overdoing causes loss of scent and affects oil quality. Could spread some compost around plant in early spring.

Yes---thanks for the info on lavender. I just planted some myself, and my mom also gave me some from her garden today as she just thinner her lavendar stock.
