Best variety for a hedge or row:
Soil – Lavender loves dry soil! Mix small stones/pebbles and grit sand into the soil to aid with drainage.
Watering – General rule of thumb, water sparingly as lavender loves dry soil. Water every 2 to 3 days after planting for the first 2 weeks; after this water only if the weather is very hot.
Please note – lavender planted in pots will need watering more regularly than plants in the ground.
Feeding – We don’t recommend feeding lavender, however you can use ‘Levington Tomorite Concentrated Tomato Food’.
How many plants do I need? – We recommend planting 3 or 4 plants within a meter or 9 to 16 per meter square.
For large varieties like Grosso and Edelweiss, plant 3 per metre.
1KG of dried lavender fills three-quarters of a carrier bag.
