Lavender is very much part of the “English“ garden scene, it is valued for its fragrance and long flowering period (you can see them come to life throughout July through to September). However, it’s their vivid blue, pink or white colour and silver foliage that has made them such a sought after flower; when we think of Lavender we envision a purple meadow in the countryside and our noses filled with its sweet aromatic scent.
It can be grown as a shrub or a low growing hedge; it enjoys light, well drained soil and needs to be trimmed back with shears after flowering, giving you the chance to lightly shape it in April. They are a low maintenance plant, as most varieties will spread around 2ft across, when pruned a few times a year and kept in a well drained soil.
This is just one of the reasons why Lavender is our Plant of the Month, and to celebrate its beauty we are offering you two lavender varietiesfor £15. In our collection you will find a great assortment of lavenders that will fit perfectly in every English home, allowing you to fill your garden with their evocative scent.
