Product Information

Seen in some of the swankiest gardens across the country, lavender will easily create features that will delight all the senses for many years, such as hedges, specimen bushes and topiary.

The silvery grey foliage and pure purple blooms are packed with a heady scent and will provide you a colourful spectacle from early to mid summer. Hidcote is one of the most aromatic varieites, grown widely in the fragrance market, yet is a great garden variety too. The purple flowers are also a magnet to bees, butterflies and other beneficial creatures, which will have your garden buzzing with wildlife - literally! 

Growing up to 60cm tall, a hedge of traditional English lavender can be used in many ways. Try planting it around beds, borders or paths, to divide up parts of your garden or to make an eye-catching parterre or knot garden space plants 30cm apart. Once established, a lavender hedge is extremely drought tolerant. Keep it in great shape by pruning twice a year; trim lightly in mid to late summer, removing spent flower heads. Prune again in early spring, removing about 2.5cm of growth.

Top Tips

In late summer, clip the plants back lightly after the flowers have faded. Cut the stems back by a few inches, but not so far that the stems are bare of live foliage, and plants will then have time to produce new shoots before winter dormancy.

Care Information

  • This drought-tolerant plant thrives in a sunny border, container, herb or gravel gardens.
  • Best planted between April and May when the soil is warming up, lavender thrives in most free-draining soils in full sun. Heavier soils should have some grit added to improve drainage and to open them up.
  • Space plants 90cm (3ft) apart, or if growing a hedge, 30cm (1ft) apart or, 45cm (18in) for larger cultivars.
  • Lavender can be grown in large pots, 30-40cm (1ft-16in) diameter, using a multipurpose or loam-based compost such as JI No 3, with some extra coarse grit, (up to 30%), to improve drainage, along with some controlled release fertiliser granules.
  • Ensure that the compost is regularly watered in summer, although for improved cold tolerance, kept on the dry side during winter by standing in a cold greenhouse or in the rain shadow of walls.
