Product Information

Lavender 'Hidcote' the classic, hardy English Lavender, has been combined with Lavandula stoechas 'Castilliano' with heads of lavender, topped with vivid, tufted petals like little bunny ears!

A fragrant, easy to grow evergreen lavender collection not available elsewhere, it’s ideal as a scented hedge or border - just make sure you situate your plants somewhere you’ll be able to catch their magnificent scent!

The silvery leaves and blooms are packed with a heady fragrance, and the purple flowers will provide you a colourful spectacle from early to mid-summer. They’re a magnet to bees, butterflies and other beneficial creatures, which will have your garden buzzing with life.

Compact, hardy, drought-tolerant and incredibly easy to grow, lavenders are perfect for growing either side of doorways, pathways and entrances or for the patio. Hidcote is ideal for many situations and French lavender is one of the prettiest and eye-catching varieties. Both varieties are ideal in pots, just make sure that the soil in the container is light and drains well.

Once established, Lavender is extremely drought tolerant, easy to grow and needs very little maintenance - you can even cut the stems to make fragrant indoor dried displays!

They’ll stay compact, reaching 45-60cm (1-2ft) tall. Very hardy, incredibly easy to grow, and drought tolerant keep them in great shape by pruning twice a year.
Both blooms and leaves are fragrant, and you can even cut the stems to make fragrant indoor dried displays! Blooms June to September.

The flowers are not quite like ordinary lavender blooms, as they are topped with long, darker bracts that look like butterfly wings or bunny ears - hence its common name of bunny ear or butterfly lavender. Blooms May to August

Top Tips

In early spring, before flowers appear remove about 2.5cm of growth. In late summer, clip the plants back lightly after the flowers have faded,  cutting the stems back by a few inches, but not so far that the stems are bare of live foliage, and plants will then have time to produce new shoots before winter dormancy.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Lavender:

  • This drought-tolerant plant thrives in a sunny border, container, herb or gravel gardens.
  • Best planted between April and May when the soil is warming up, lavender thrives in most free-draining soils in full sun. Heavier soils should have some grit added to improve drainage and to open them up.
  • Space plants 90cm (3ft) apart, or if growing a hedge, 30cm (1ft) apart or, 45cm (18in) for larger cultivars.
  • Lavender can be grown in large pots, 30-40cm (1ft-16in) diameter, using a multipurpose or loam-based compost such as JI No 3, with some extra coarse grit, (up to 30%), to improve drainage, along with some controlled release fertiliser granules.

Aftercare Advice for Lavenders:

  • Ensure that the compost is regularly watered in summer, although for improved cold tolerance, kept on the dry side during winter by standing in a cold greenhouse or in the rain shadow of walls.

Purning Advice for Lavender:

  • Trim lightly in mid to late summer, removing spent flower heads. Prune again in early spring, before flowers appear removing about 2.5cm of growth.
