Lavandula angustifolia Hedge Plant Description

An interesting fact about English Lavender plants that you might not know about. Back in the 1700s, English Lavender plants were the basis of England's lavender oil industry, and you can understand why by the fragrance this species releases. Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead' is a traditional and favourable plant to have in the classic English cottage garden and countryside home, as it makes a stunning compact, hardy and easy to grow shrubbery hedge. Compared to the other main native, 'Hidcote' variety of Lavender from the UK, English Lavender plants have a much softer and relatively pale shade of purple flowers, with a lighter foliage colour.

The scent that is released from English Lavender plants is often used to deter pests from other host plants, including fruit trees. The flowers that produce the fragrance are unique and recognisable, and the grey/ green leaves are also aromatic.

Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead' flowers from May/ June through to August and attracts butterflies, bees and other winged insects and pollinators, which, as a result, will also attract wild birds. It's a fabulous plant to have in the garden if you enjoy having local wildlife in your outdoor space. We recommend planting English lavender in free-draining soil, and it thrives in sunny conditions. However, please note that English Lavender plants do not tolerate shade, wet conditions, particularly with cold/ freezing temperatures or heavy soil. Some cover might be required to protect the plant over winter to ensure it remains healthy.

Being drought-tolerant, Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead' is ideal for Mediterranean style gardens and will grow just as well in containers, planters and gravel. While English Lavender prefers sunny conditions and free-draining soil, it does make an extremely versatile addition to a garden. It looks stunning as a low-level border hedge along pathways or planting area or when planted in contrast against other brightly coloured shrubs.

Aside from the subtly sweet fragrance, English Lavender plants have many culinary uses, adding an aromatic twist to honey, biscuits, tea, cakes and even cocktails. Interestingly, Lavender can replace Rosemary in savoury dishes and the flowers are edible, imparting a sweet, citrusy flavour. It can also be quickly dried and stored for future uses.

English Lavender plants are a popular variety of Lavender hedging, but we do also have the following additional types available - Lavender 'Hidcote', French Lavender, White Lavender, and Dwarf Lavender.

Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Lavender is very easy to cultivate but the key to its longevity is pruning. This should be done as soon as the flowers start to fade in August. They can handle a hard pruning and we recommend removing one third of the plant, not just the flower spikes. This allows light to penetrate into the heart of the plant after which small shoots will then grow a further 5cm before the plants start to go dormant in September.

Pruning in this way ensures that the plants have a lush, tidy appearance through winter. Once spring comes, the new shoots wil re-commence their growth giving you a dense shrub and healthy production of flowers as the weather warms.

Alternatively, you can leave the spent flower heads on the plants until spring because in winter, when food for birds is scarce, birds will come to feed on the seeds - goldfinches in particular! Plants might eventually become wooded and straggly though so it is best to replace a hedge after about 20 years although this is not always necessary.
