Lavandula angustifolia Hedge Plant Description

English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead') was the basis of the England's lavender oil industry in the 1700's, and it's easy to see (or smell!) why with its incredible fragrance. A traditional favourite for the classic English cottage garden, Lavender 'Munstead' makes for a compact, hardy and easy to grow shrubby hedge. Compared to the other main native 'Hidcote' variety of Lavender from the UK, English Lavender 'Munstead' has a softer and relatively pale shade of purple flowers, with a lighter colour of foliage.

Lavender 'Munstead' scent is often used to deter pests from other host plants such as fruit trees. The flower spikes are famous for their perfume and the grey/green leaves are also aromatic. English Lavender flowers from May/June through to August, attracting butterflies, bees and other winged insects and pollinators which in turn attract wild birds. Best planted in free-draining soil, it thrives in sunny conditions; it doesn't tolerate shade, wet conditions, exceptionally cold /freezing conditions or a heavy soil. Some cover may be needed to protect the plant over winter to ensure it remains healthy.

Being drought tolerant, this lovely plant is ideal for Mediterranean style gardens and will grow just as well in containers, planters and gravel. Lavender is an extremely versatile addition to a garden and looks stunning as a low level border hedge along paths or planting areas, or planted in contrast aginst other brightly coloured plants and flowers.

English Lavender with its more subtle sweet fragrance also has many culinary uses, adding an aromatic twist to honey, biscuits, cakes and even cocktails! Interestingly, Lavender can be used in place of Rosemary in savoury dishes and the flowers are also edible imparting a sweet, citrusy flavour. As it can be easily dried and stored for future use, Lavender's culinary versatility knows no bounds!

English Lavender plants are a popular variety of Lavender hedging, but we do also have the following additional varieties for sale - Lavender 'Hidcote', 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. 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.
