Lavendula angustifolia Munstead

Lavendula angustifolia Hidcote - Old English Lavender
Availability: Out of stock

 Introduced from the Mediterranean area in the 16th century, it has become a well established, well known and well loved plant with many different varieties and cultivars. A true Cottage garden plant. Munstead is one of the oldest varieties but still one of the best. A compact form producing abundant spikes of blue purple, highly fragrant, flowers in summer. A beautiful plant. Easy to grow in most well drained soils, fertile or poor, in a sunny to light shade location. Can be used in a mixed planting or as a stand alone specimen in the garden or can easily be grown in a pot or container. When growing in a pot or other container. Use a good quality John Innes compost with 20% added horticultural grit to ensure good drainage. Lavenders hate sitting in water logged soil. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 5-6 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost. Often used to form low hedges. This plant has many culinary and medicinal uses, far too many to list here!
