Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This unusual cultivar has bright, variegated foliage with broad yellow margins that radiate a golden glow. From June to August, Lavender 'Platinum Blonde' is crowned with a profusion of blue flower heads, borne on stiffly upright stems. Like all Lavender, the flowers and foliage are deeply aromatic, perfuming the air every time you brush past. This eye-catching variety makes a colourful evergreen hedge for edging borders and pathways. Plant in sunny borders, gravel gardens or patio containers - wherever you grow it, this English Lavender will always attract plenty of bees and pollinating insects. Height and spread: 50cm (20").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.


Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. There are many ways to use lavender flowers, both in sweet or savoury dishes. Make a delicious lavender sugar and add to biscuits, sorbets, jams or jellies. Add flowers to vegetable stock and create a tasty sauce for duck, chicken or lamb dishes.

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.
