Hidcote Lavender Hedge Plants Description

This variety grows to about 50cm and is included in our low growing section alongside heaps of alternative species. Lavender 'Hidcote' is a hardy variety native to the British Isles and is incredibly fragrant with vivid purple flowers that are a magnet for bees and other pollinators, making them an ideal companion to your fruit trees or garden veg patch. Being an English variety (although not to be confused with English Lavender 'Munstead'), Lavender 'Hidcote is perfectly suited to UK gardens, making them very easy to grow in order achieve a classic English Cottage Garden appearance.

When set against the other main English 'Munstead' variety of British Lavender, Lavender 'Hidcote' has darker purple flower spikes, with a bolder colour of foliage that is equally as fragrant.

Lavender prefers full sun, ideally south or west facing. It is suitable for poor or moderately fertile, well drained alkaline soil. Once established they are drought tolerant and they certainly do not like to be waterlogged or to sit in wet soil - plant on a soil ridge to avoid roots sitting in wet soil. Tolerant of seaside weather conditions. See also our range of hedging for exposed sites.

The practicality of Lavender Hidcote makes this wonderful shrub a popular alternative when it comes to box hedging and blight.

Hidcote Lavender are available all year round - plants bought in Autumn, Winter or Spring will flower in the first Summer.

Whilst Lavender Hidcote is a popular variety of Lavender hedging, we do also have the following additional varieties for sale - English Lavender, French Lavender, White Lavender, and Dwarf Lavender.

Further Information
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. Small shoots will grow a further 5cm before the plants start to go dormant in September, giving them a lush, tidy appearance through Winter. 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 so it is best to replace a hedge after about 20 years though this is not always necessary.
