There are few finer sights in a cottage garden than French Lavender. Unlike conventional Lavender, the French variety emits a spicy fragrance. The evergreen plants are surprisingly easy to grow and enchantingly decorative. The flowers of Lavender ‘Fathead' are rich in nectar, making them especially desirable for bees. French Lavender thrives best in sheltered borders and relishes path edges or containers - you'll love the aromatic perfume as your legs brush past the plants! Height and spread: 60cm (24").

Culinary information: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Click here for more details about edible flowers.

Grow Lavender in a sunny spot 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 plants are 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.
