20 English Lavender in 9cm Pots
Lavandula angustifolia 'Ellegance Purple' is a wonderful hardy, dwarf lavender with deep purple-blue, highly scented flowers over a long season.
Flowering in its first year of planting, it is so versatile and cherished that it is ideal for the front of the border, rockery, kitchen garden, raised bed, gravel garden, coastal garden, herb garden, rose bed, patio pots, balconies and of course path edges. As the aromatic foliage is brushed against, the air is filled with its delightful perfume providing an instantly romantic escape to the stunning fields of Provence.
Perfect for pollinators too, it can also help to deter aphids, making it ideal to create a dwarf hedge around the vegetable patch or planted amongst roses.
Good for drying, adding flavour to the barbecue and for many recipes such as 'Lavender Scones' and 'Lavender Ice Cream' - for recipe ideas, take a look at: RECIPES USING ENGLISH LAVENDER.
Plants should be planted 20-30cm (1 ft) apart and can be trimmed back after flowering, forming a neat hedge. Best in full sun with excellent drainage.
