Has anyone ever noticed why, or had this in their Lavender beds? Newly added Lav plants doing very well, however, I have noticed ants all over the new shoots. They dont seem to be hurting the plants, and so growth is still strong and green. I wonder if they are attracted to the sweet scent? They have been "hangin" on for a week.

-cautious and keeping my eye on um!

Hi Kerrie, I have never noticed ants on my lilacs, maybe you planted very close to a colony? Are they nibbling the leaves. I can't imagine that they would hurt it. The only plant that I know attracts ants is the Peony, and they don't hurt it. Carol
