Lavender makes a wonderful interior hedge, well suited to lining pathways, edging borders near the entrance to your home, delineating different parts of the garden and anywhere else you pass by often where it’s delightful scent can be most appreciated. Lavender has been a favourite of English gardens for centuries, prized for its richly perfumed flowers and aromatic foliage. The distinctive purple, pink or white flowers are produced on long stalks above a compact mass of grey-green leaves between July and September. Their strong, sweet scent is used to make pot-pourri and they can be cut in bunches and hung on doors or walls to bring the beautiful fragrance into other parts of your home. Best grown basked in full sun in a free-draining, gritty soil, lavender also works well in containers on the patio or in the border near doorways and entrances. The two most common types of lavender are English lavender (Lavender angustifolia) which are tough and hardy plants and secondly French and tender lavenders (including Lavender Stoechas varieties) which should be protected from the frost over winter. Prune lavender plants annually to maintain their neat, compact growth habit. Avoid feeding lavender plants, even in the summer, as they prefer soils that are low in nutrients.
