Lavender 'Hidcote' (Large Plant)

Lavandula angustifolia, English Lavender

Hardy Shrub

With its compact habit and dark purple flower spikes, this must be one of the nation's best known varieties of English lavender. The fragrant stems of Lavandula 'Hidcote' are ideal for cutting or drying, and the nectar-rich flowers are particularly attractive to bees. Lavender makes an excellent low hedge or path edging where the perfume can be appreciated as you brush past the aromatic evergreen foliage. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 75cm (30").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Grow English lavender plants in free draining soil. Choose a position 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.
