Lavender (Lavandula) is easy to grow and produces beautifully scented flowers on a backdrop of green and silver foliage, and is a perfect addition to any garden. We stock a variety of lavender plants throughout the year, including; Lavandula x intermedia Grosso, Lavandula Angustifolia Hidcote, Lavandula Angustifolia Imperial Gem, Lavandula Angustifolia Munstead, Lavandula Angustifolia Rosea, Lavandula Angustifolia Provence Blue, and Lavandula Angustifolia Edelweiss.

 

Lavender is best planted during spring between April and May, as it is at this time that the soil is beginning to warm up. It ideally likes chalky soils but can thrive in poor or fairly fertile soils in full sunshine, and is a great inclusion to gravel and coastal gardens thanks to its hardy nature.

 

Once established in the ground it can be forgiving of drought conditions and can grow quickly. It is recommended to keep the lavender pruned each year, should you wish to retain a shape to it and keep it compact. You can also grow lavender in pots, just ensure you keep the plant well watered in summer. It’s best to keep it in a greenhouse during the winter, so it can be protected from this harsh time of year. Lavender can be used for many purposes, including for oil and cut flower production.
