Here’s What Is Causing Your Lavender Plant Leaves To Turn Brown

0 9

Botrytis is sometimes also referred to as gray mold, as that is the color it typically displays on fruits and flowers, which is often where a gardener may first notice the infection. However, on lavender plants, it can manifest as browning leaves that may appear as though they are coated in brown or gray dust. The leaves are typically located near the base of the plant, closest to the part of the plant that is touching the overly moist soil. The “dust” you may see on the leaves is actually mold spores that can very easily spread to other leaves on the lavender plant or even plants in your garden.

Root rot, another fungal infection that could make your lavender plant’s leaves turn brown, can be less apparent than botrytis. As its name implies, root rot is a form of fungal infection that begins under the ground, attacking a plant’s roots. If you notice browning leaves on your lavender plant and suspect root rot could be a cause, it might be worth it to dig a little at the base of your plant. Root rot often leads to blackened, slimy roots that are clearly no longer capable of sustaining the plant.
