- Mature Spread: 0.1-1m Why We Love It Lavender is a wonderful plant that is suited to any garden.

Very fragrant and will attract plenty of wildlife to the garden. Butterflies & bees especially. What To Know Flowering Time: June and July
Position: Full sun
Soil: Well drained, moderately fertile How to Care Water plants deeply but infrequently, when the soil is almost dry.
- Prune in early spring or at harvest time.
- Harvest for sachets and potpourri by cutting flower spikes or stripping flowers from stems just as blossoms show color; dry in a cool, shaded place.
- Little feeding is required, although a sprinkling of potash around the base of plants will encourage more prolific flowering and improved flower colour. Do not add bulky manure or high nitrogen feed as your lavenders in particular, will grow very sappy and flop open.
- Remove, or deadhead, spent blooms regularly for the entire blooming season. This prolongs the overall blooming duration and promotes bushier growth.
- To use lavender for drying and pot-pourri, harvest just before full-bloom and hang upside down in bunches in a dry dark room.
- Why does lavender die? One of the biggest problems and causes of Lavender dying out is the overwatering of potted Lavender or excessive soil moisture for those plants grown in the ground. Over wet soil conditions leads to fungus and root rot problems. This can cause wilted black leaves where the plant is dying back.
