Product Information

Lavender is a classic, hardy English perennial, and this much-loved cottage garden favourite will transform your garden with colour, incredible fragrance and plenty of flower power!

A proven winner in UK gardens, Lavender 'Grosso' is perfect in beds, borders and containers and is also ideal for edging a path or for planting as a fragrant hedge or garden border where its magnificent scent will delight anyone who walks past! With masses of long, slender stems, that are topped with clusters of rich purple flowers it's the perfect solution to attract bees and other beneficial wildlife into your garden. In fact, the RHS have recommended 'Grosso' as a 'Plant for Pollinators' and makes an ideal companion plant if you grow your own fruit and veg. Itíll stay compact too when clipped, reaching just 90cm (3ft) tall when left to its own devices, so wonít take over your garden either.

Very hardy, incredibly easy to grow and drought tolerant, a top growing tip is to clip lavender back lightly after the flowers have faded in late summer. Cut 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. The clippings can then be uses to make fragrant indoor displays and potpourri!

This drought-tolerant plant will thrive in a sunny border, container, herb or gravel gardens. If you garden on heavy clay, it is worth adding some grit to improve drainage and to open the soil 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.

Supplied as super-sized plant in a 2L pot, ready to provide you with fast results for the minimum amount of effort. Your lavender plants will be delivered straight to your door in time to create fabulous and long-lasting displays - just plant them straight into your pots, hanging baskets or beds and borders and look forward to great displays with absolutely no fuss and no need to leave your house!

Top Tips

  • In late summer, clip the plants back lightly after the flowers have faded. Cut 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.
  • before flowers appear removing about 2.5cm of growth.

Care Information

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
