Lavender 'Munstead'

Lavandula angustifolia , English lavender

Hardy Shrub

 Customer Review Rating
A cottage garden classic! Brush past its evergreen foliage to release the intense perfume of this compact lavender. Its delicate purple blue flowers held on stiff stems, attract bees and other insects; they also make excellent cut or dried flowers. Grow Lavender Munstead in containers, as a low hedge, or to soften paths and patio edges. Just be sure to plant it where you can savour its beguiling fragrance! Height: 45cm (18"). Supplied as plug tray plants.

Pot up plugs into 7cm pots and grow them on until large enough to plant outside in their final positions. Plant outside in a sunny site on free draining soil. Lavender particularly dislikes wet ground during winter months so incorporate plenty of coarse grit or sharp sand when planting on heavy clay soils. When growing lavender in patio containers, use a well drained soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Water well and position in full sun.
Feed and water until plant is established. Once established, lavender plants are reasonably drought tolerant and will seldom require attention. Prune Lavender stems back to two buds immediately after flowering to promote bushy growth and a multitude of flowers the following year. New growth can be lightly shaped in March if necessary.
We will do our best to ship your plants or bulbs to you at the ideal time for planting as stated against each product. We recommend that you prepare your soil, planting beds or patio containers ahead of time so you are ready to plant out, or pot on, just as soon as your order arrives. You will find the name of the variety printed on the top line of the address label on your package. Please ensure that you open the packaging immediately and carefully read through the instruction leaflet provided. For greatest success, please pot on or plant out as soon as possible, following the cultural instructions enclosed with your order.

  1. Don't hesitate

    By Audrey Jenkins 30-08-2016

    I bought Lavender Munstead 48 Plugs which were Despatched: 21/06/2016 and promptly received. Well, I wish that I could add a photograph to this review, as they are unbelievable now (end Aug.) and already bushy and in flower. I have consistently found that on arrival plug plants from Vanmeuwen are healthier and further on in growth when compared to plug planted from other companies . I am so pleased with these, as I bought the same type of lavender package from a different firm a few years ago, and Vanmeuwen's appear to be a year ahead in comparison.. Also, I bought Vanmeuwen's when on discount !.

  2. Great Quality but a few problems with delivery

    By glenda harries 03-05-2016

    Great quality plants all, kept in greenhouse for a couple of months and growing well and so far no losses, I suggest reading up about these plants as they need certain conditions to do well, i.e. with drainage etc., my only complaint was that my first order was lost in the post, I was very disappointed, was offered a refund but decided to wait for the next batch which I am glad I did, well worth the wait and will definitely keep shopping with Van Meuwen.
