Planting+

Lavender grows best in a dry but humus-rich soil. For the best growing results, lavender is happy in a nice, sunny spot. Lavender plants should be spaced at least 35 cm apart as they can reach to be about 50 cm wide (max.). This will give the lavender sufficient room to grow into a nice bush or hedge.
Soak your lavender in its growers pot for an hour or so in a bucket of lukewarm water prior to planting. Dig a wide hole and improve the soil with some added sand and humus. Remove the plant from its growers pot and plant at the right depth. Fill the hole with more soil and heel well in. Water your lavender generously immediately after planting.

Lavender combines well with roses

Do your roses suffer from aphids? Then you should definitely plant some lavender plants between your roses. They'll not only look great together, but the scent of lavender gets rid of aphids.

Care+

With proper care of your lavender you can look forward to a healthy, compact and free-flowering shrub which will bring you lots of enjoyment. Prune twice a year, after flowering and in early or mid-spring after the winter, between mid-March and early April. Cut back flowered shoots to within 2.5 cm (1in) of old growth. This should be done regularly to hedges to prevent them from getting bare at the base.

Prune after flowering

The second pruning should take place after the flowering period, between August and October. During this pruning, remove the faded flowers by cutting them off. The branches can also be trimmed.

Extra+

Lavender looks lovely when harvested and dried in bunches for ornamental use. To harvest lavender it is best to cut the sprigs off the bush just as the bottom flowers begin to open which is the time when they are most fragrant and should be cut late afternoon. Put them into small bunches and tie each bunch with an elastic band and hang them in a dry place with good air circulation and away from sunlight.
