Lavender Hidcote, English Lavender

Product Description

Lavandula angustifolia Hidcote

Lavender is up there in the top-ten favourite garden plants, both for its relative ease of cultivation, its beautiful looks and scent and of course its culinary uses. Wikipedia grandly refers to it as native to the 'Old World' (the Eastern Hemisphere), which seems only fitting for such a sublime plant. And did you know the name derives from the Latin 'Lavare', 'to wash', referring to the use of Lavender infusions, although some say it is the Latin word 'livere', 'blueish', that gave this plant its name?
In any case, Hidcote Lavender is also known as 'English Lavender', as are all angustifolia species - a bushy dwarf evergreen shrub with narrow, silvery-grey leaves and small deep violet-purple flowers in dense spikes 3-4cm in length. Fantastically fragrant and a winner in any cottage garden, border or herb garden, especially as a mass planting. Works just great in containers, too as long as there are holes in the bottom to let excess moisture out.

Lavender grows best in dry, well-drained, sandy or gravelly soils in full sun. All types need little or no fertilizer and good air circulation. In areas of high humidity, root rot due to fungus infection can be a problem - organic mulches can trap moisture around the plants' bases, encouraging root rot - and gravelly materials such as crushed rocks give best results. Preferred soil pH is between 6 and 8.
Lavender flowers on the previous year's growth in spring or early summer, or on the current year's growth in late summer and autumn. Prune immediately after flowering where flowering is on the previous year's growth, or in the subsequent early to mid-spring (April-May) if flowering is on the current year's growth. Remove shoots that have flowered to within 1.5-2.5cm (¾-1in) of the previous year's growth.
