Extending the Lavender Season

By choosing even just a few varieties, your garden can host flowering Lavenders from late-May to the first frosts. July, though, really is Lavender month as all of the most popular varieties are in bloom…
Lavender Imperial Gem  Mid-May to mid-July
Lavender Dwarf Blue  Mid-June to July
Lavender Hidcote  Mid-June to July
Lavender Twickle Purple  June to July
Lavender Richard Gray  Mid-June to August
Lavender Alba Mid-June to September
Lavender Grosso July to September
Lavender Maillette June to end July
Lavender Sawyers  July to mid-August
Even better, is that many Lavenders, like Roses, can be encouraged to a second flush by what amounts to dead-heading. As flowers go past their best, simply cut back the old flowers. Imperial Gem, among others, responds particularly well.
Still time to order Lavender Grosso
Lavender Grosso, famous (like Lavender Mailette) for its oil and fragrance, has established itself as the must-have late flowering variety and there is still time to add some to your garden. Our plants are coming into full flower (as of July 29th 2015) and will bring instant colour and fragrance to your garden that will last to the end of September.
