Lavender plants are fragrant, evergreen and iconic – and ideal for Mediterranean or European style parterres; edging for borders or islands or as specimen plants in pots, tubs or raised beds. Many different varieties are available, but some of the best known are prone to rotting and may therefore succumb to a wet winter. Which is why we grow hardier alternatives that are no less attractive but much better equipped to survive the vagaries of our climate. Our lavenders have green to silvery-grey aromatic foliage and produce masses of beautifully scented flowers in colours from light to deep blue; from purple to pink through to a pure, delicate white.
To help the selection process, they are split into four groups (we offer three):
1. Angustifolia or English – which flower late May to mid July with shortish flower spikes, stay compact with a range of flower colours. We currently offer Dwarf Blue, Imperial Gem, Little Lady, Miss Katherine, Twickle Purple.
2. Intermedia or Dutch – Tall with longer flower spikes & flower later from late June to August. Our Intermedia range includes: Alba, Grosso, Phenomenal and the stunning Edelweiss.
3. Chaytoriae – Specialist but not suitable as low hedging with very attractive silver foliage & short flower spikes, mid season. Our range consists of Richard Grey and Sawyers varieties.
