Description

Long-blooming, drought-resistant and easy to grow, lavender is a staple of every sunny garden. Lavender angustifolia ‘Essence Purple’ is a particularly early-flowering variety, forming dense, rounded clumps of greyish green aromatic foliage that retain their shape well and provide year-round structure and interest. Straight stems of bright blueish-purple flowers form a beautiful haze above the foliage throughout summer, attracting bees and butterflies. The long-lasting blooms are also perfect for cutting or drying. Height: 45cm (16-20in). Spread: 45-60cm (18-24in).

Culinary Herb note: Some parts of these plants are edible and can be used as herbs to add flavour and colour to your meals. For more details about edible flowers click here.

How to Grow
Grow English lavender plants 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.
More Info
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.
