>Dear Raisya:
>Living in the State of Texas have you had success with lavender?  
>Every year we pick
>out a few good specimens from the herb shop, plant them in partial 
>shade, and water
>when they get dry.  They seem to do well until around August, when the 
>temps get near
>100 and the rains cease.  We live in Houston so our weather is wetter, 
>about as hot
>and definitely more humid.  In the summer its not unusual to have dual 
>90's (95+ °F,
>and 90% humidity), this usually spells doom for most European herbs.  
>For instance
>Pennyroyal is a winter annual (like pansies), dying off in the heat of 
> summer.  On
>the positive side we have a bay laurel bush, and rosemary borders that 
>stay all year.
>> Hope this helps some, and don't hesitate to yell for help!
