Lavender needs little introduction with its highly scented leaves and flowers and is known to most in one form or another. Whilst Lavender will not create a formal boxed shape hedge, it does need clipping to keep it tight. Clipping should be carried out at the end of the summer when flowering has finished which will encourage a spurt of new growth before the winter. Lavender produces an abundance of scented flowers of various shades of blue and purple throughout the spring and summer on elongated stems. We normally stock various popular varieties of lavender throughout the spring and summer which are suitable for planting in full sunshine on well drained soils. Many people will plant lavender as individual specimen bushes or as informal hedges. Scroll down for more information on lavender.
