Lavender

We sell many different varieties of Lavender for different purposes. Lavender 'Angustifolia' is the more traditional variety of Lavender which is most used for hedging and culinary purposes. Lavender 'Angustifolia' has been bred over the years to give a great choice of different colours and heights depending on the situation that it may be required for. The 'Intermedia' range of Lavender generally has less compact habit with taller flower spikes than 'Angustifolia', these would be more commonly used as a statement in a border as well as being good for drying. The 'Stoechas' range of Lavender, more commonly referred to as 'French Lavender' has a different more shrub like habit to 'Angustifolia' and 'Intermedia' and is less hardy. French Lavender comes in a stunning array of colours and colour combinations and is often used as more of a bedding plant for the summer months. Depending on location and climate, French Lavender can be over wintered in optimum conditions.

GROWING LAVENDER

Lavender requires a light, sandy soil that is free draining and in full sun. Lavender needs to be trimmed back each year after flowering to maintain its shape. Depending on situation, your Lavender may need to be replaced every 5 – 6 years because eventually the plant will become woody in the middle, as is it's nature, but if grown in optimum conditions may last a little longer. Lavender 'Angustifolia', 'intermedia' and 'Stoechas' require the same treatment except that the 'Stoechas' is less hardy.
