Lavenders 'Lodden Pink' and 'Munstead' are best grown in dry, humus-rich soil. Place these plants in a sunny area for best results. The plants should be planted with a minimal distance of 35 cm since they can reach a width of up to 50 cm. These lavenders are wide enough to grow as a beautiful hedge plant. Plant 5 per metre.
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.
With good maintenance of these lavenders, you can constantly enjoy a nice, compact and free-flowering shrub. Prune after flowering, or in early or mid-spring, cut back flowered shoots to within 2.5cm (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.
Lavender can be harvested during the flowering period to make wonderful bunches of either fresh or dry flowers. It is best to harvest at the end of the afternoon. Cut off the stems of the lavender bush before the flowers actually open and organize them into small bunches. Tie each bunch together with a rubber band and hang them in a dry place with good air circulation and away from sunlight.
