We recently took out a bunch of wild looking plants along the side yard. Then we put in some lavender. I have completely ignored it. No fertilizer, no garden talk, just here's the dirt guys, do your stuff kind of an attitude for getting these going.

They started out a 4 inch plants and over the course of a few months they've grown nice and large and are producing some really nice buds.
Their fragrance is wonderful. Even prior to blooming they gave off a wonderful aroma.

Here's an upclose pic of a few blooms:
