            Bought these last spring to plant as a hedge. Thickened up really well and flowered well too so really pleased. Plants were a good size and have bought more this year to continue the hedge. Would recommend. Wanted a low fragrant bank to attract bees and look good all year, which so far it does!

            • Q:

              Can I still plant lavandula angustifolia in an outdoor raised bed this late in the year (first week in November)? If so, is there anything I should do to give the plants the best chance?
              Thankyou

                Hello there
                This lavender is fully hardy, so yes it can be planted out now as long as the ground isn't frozen or freezing outside. However it isn't the cold that tends to kill these plants but a waterlogged soil, so if you do plant out now make sure that the soil has really good drainage.

              Which Lavenderis best for border edging and what size plants?

              Hi I am at the moment pulling out some very shabby Lavender which was edging two borders. I would like to replace them but I am not sure which would be the best variety to use (I inherited them with the house and can't tell what they were). I would also appreciate some advice on how far apart to plant them and whether it would be better to buy the bigger more mature plants or samller plants? Thanks in advance for any guidance you can give me. Katie

              • A:

                Hello Katie, All Lavenders do well as hedging, but as the angustifolias are hardier, I would opt for this type. If you want a taller hedge and you don't mind being a little patient, then I would opt for the smaller pots of Lavandula angustifolia. If however you want a more compact hedge, then L. angustifolia Munstead or L. angustifolia Hidcote would be a better option. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
