I am trying to grow a lavender plant on the windowsill of my apartment in Brooklyn. I got this more succulent lavender after some more delicate french lavender had died on the same sill. This plant has lasted longer, but some of the leaves have gone silver and wizened.
I am trying to water it quite infrequently, as I believe the last lavenders died from overwatering. We've oscillated between very hot dry weather and cooler damp weather in Brooklyn over the past month.
I have three questions about it:
- What is causing the leaf damage?
- How can I mitigate it?
- Should I remove the wizened leaves? (By cutting them off at the stalk, I assume?)
