Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote'

'Hidcote' English lavender

Price: €8.95

Aromatic flowers and foliage - a classic garden plant. This is the best compact variety. Best in full sun and well-drained soil. It makes a low hedge, and should be planted somewhere which you brush against or pass often. All parts are aromatic. Does best if flower stalks are trimmed after flowering. Cut back to the main body of the plant again at the end of the year. Does not tolerate wet soils or shade, and when planted in this situation it can be leggy and short-lived. Plant two to three plants per metre for a good hedge, or dot amongst perennials in a dry sunny area. Lovely Irish-grown plants, nice and bushy, in 3 litre container.
