Buy Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead' lavender: A compact variety with blue-purple flowers

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A compact lavender, named after Gertrude Jekyll's garden at Munstead Wood. It produces dense spikes of fragrant, bluish-purple summer flowers above slender, aromatic, grey-green leaves. This is a lovely lavender for edging paths and borders; the aromatic foliage perfumes the air if you brush against it. It also works well in a gravel garden, or clipped into a formal sphere for a contemporary look. The flower-spikes are highly attractive to bees and other nectar-loving insects.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded. Carefully trim back in April, taking care not to cut into old wood.

Planted in raised beds as we are on heavy clay, have grown well and flowered well - very pleased. Great scent and bees love them too.

We wish to grow a small hedge of lavender, length 14m, of 2 different type of Lavender. The height ideally would be a max of 450mm. Could you advise which lavenders would be good matches, particularly to attract bess? How many plants would we need, what spacing, when would be ideal to plant and what cost? Thanks

Hello, 45cm is quite small for lavenders, however if you want to have 2 different ones, you could choose between 'Munstead', 'Little Lady', 'Blue Cushion' and 'Elizabeth' - please click on the links below to go straight to them. As for planting distances, they can be spaced at 25-30cm intervals, and they can be planted at any time of the year, provided the ground is not frozen.

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
