Lavendar (Large)
By admin | |
Small Lavender plant propagated at the Windmill Community Gardens, Margate using chemical free growing methods.

Lavender should never be planted in winter when young plants are vulnerable to rotting in cold, wet soils. Lavender looks great in flower borders, herb gardens and as a low hedge or edging to a border. It also grows well in containers. Lavender is a Mediterranean plant (in needs if not always in geographic origin) and needs lots of sun and fast-draining soil. It will not survive long in shady, damp or extremely cold conditions.
