Lavender 'Bluestar' (French)

Lavandula stoechas, French Lavender

Hardy Shrub

Lavender ‘Blue Star’ is a compact French Lavender, which is ideal for containers or small gardens. Plants will attract bees and butterflies to the garden; and look excellent in Mediterranean gardens.

French Lavender plants are loved for their very different type of fragrance, which is spicier than traditional lavender. The flowers are also very different, with dense spikes, topped with decorative ‘wings’. Height and Spread: 45cm (18").

Pot up plants using free-draining compost, and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Once they are well grown, acclimatise English lavender plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting out on free draining soil in full sun. Lavenders dislike wet ground, particularly during winter. Improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting. When growing English lavender in large patio containers, use a well drained soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. After planting, prune lavender plants to encourage bushy growth.
Water regularly throughout summer until lavender plants are fully established. Once established, they are reasonably drought tolerant. Immediately after flowering, prune English lavender back to within 2cm (1") of the previous year's growth to maintain a compact, well shaped plant. Culinary idea: Make delicious lavender sugar or lavender and mint jelly from the freshly picked flowers.
