Hedge Xpress Large Lavenders

Large Container Grown Lavender Plants

Large Lavender plants – 10 litre container grown

As explained elsewhere on this website, we have decided, after careful thought, to discontinue supplying plants as either bare root or root balls to focus entirely on high-quality container-grown plants. All plants, and not least large Lavender plants, benefit from starting life this way and we have grown three of our most popular – and proven – large Lavender varieties in 10 litre containers. This is the optimum size to provide excellent value, instant impact and maximum reliability…

Varieties:     

Lavandula x intermedia ‘Grosso’

Lavandula angustifolia ‘Imperial Gem’

Lavendula angustifolia ‘Dwarf Blue’

Size:              10 litre containers

Price:            £17.95

Large Lavender Plants

These slow-growing varieties are fragrant, decorative, hardy, easy to maintain and highly drought resistant. And all three need just full sun and any well-draining soil to give of their best.

Between them, they offer a delightful variety of foliage and flowers and, perhaps most important, flowering times that stretch from May to early September.

Full descriptions of these large lavenders are available on their individual pages.
