Lavandula angustifolia
Real lavender
A wonderfully fragrant border? Why not use lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) to create one! The plant with purple flowers attracts bees and butterflies. The flowers bloom from the end of spring until the summer. The rest of the year, you can enjoy the evergreen stems!
After the summer, prune faded flowers away, but we leave the rest of the plant alone. In the spring, prune the plant further back to make room for young stems. Position the lavender in a sunny spot. It hardly needs any water, except in the case of prolonged drought.

Planting+

Easy to grow but for a good result lavender is best grown in dry, humus-rich soil in a sunny area and good air circulation. Make sure they have plenty of space as they can reach a width of up to 50 cm. Lavender also looks beautiful trimmed as a low growing hedge. Plant 5 per metre.
Prior to planting soak the roots in a container of lukewarm water for about an hour. Place the roots of the plant at the correct depth in the hole (approx. 5 cm). Fill with soil, press firmly and water immediately after planting

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.

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.
