    Comments about Lavandula angustifolia Blue Cushion ('Schola') (PBR):

    I ordered this small Lavender for window boxes at the front of the house which is sunny and warm in the summer time. They are the permanent plants in the boxes, with suitable additions in Winter and again in the summer. They were in flower when planted and have survived the winter without any problems. They are looking sturdy and healthy, having put on some growth, looking forward to seeing how well they flower and grow this year, have looked good all through the winter with some blue and lemon pansies.

      Comments about Lavandula angustifolia Blue Cushion ('Schola') (PBR):

      I purchased this type of lavender 15 years ago and it was always excellent as it remained shorter in height than other varieties and not did not flop everywhere. I needed to move the lavender to another position in the garden and decided to start again with new plants. I was thrilled to still find this variety on Crocus. The three plants arrived in beautiful packing that ensured they were not damaged. They were lovely healthy plants that flowered very well after delivery in the first year and I am confident they will flourish for many years. (The Customer Helpline was also very helpful).

      Comments about Lavandula angustifolia Blue Cushion ('Schola') (PBR):

      I bought 12 of these to replace French lavenders that had succumbed to a cold snap in late winter 2015-16. I also wanted more petite plants along the edge of my path and these fit the bill. The only problem has been die-back, I think owing to mold, on the plants that are more in shade, plus some very wet weather

      Lavenders - aromatic sun-lovers

      Aromatic plants produce their own fragrant oil and they use it as a sunscreen to prevent scorching, so anything aromatic or silvery needs full sun. Although drought-tolerant, these plants rely on a deep root system and once established they will never nee

      We all want a lovely garden but sometimes we are too busy with work and family, or we simply don’t have the inclination to garden incessantly, so the trick is to choose low maintenance plants such as easy shrubs and then to underplant them with ground cov
