Thank you all very much for the two trees that arrived yesterday. As you may remember they were for my wife's birthday and she was absolutely delighted. We have followed the instructions and they are now looking very nice in our small but crammed garden. They were well packed and even as she unwrapped them she had no idea what they were, a perfect surprise. So impressed was she with the service, I think other orders may follow.

An amazing scented plant that can form a beautiful fragrant hedge in your garden.

So popular in Victorian England, Lavender really does make a wonderful low boundary hedge. It can easily be kept pruned 'neat and tidy' (squared off) or for maximum flower left to form a more informal mound shape of hedge.
In the alternative plant in groups of three around the garden for amazing scent and colour.
It was popular in the past for the Greeks and Romans to bath in due to it's 'clean scent'. Lavender has a long lasting fragrance and can also be used to mask household smells (or stinking streets!)
From our experience Lavender is rabbit proof (however you may need to protect it until it is established) making it ideal for those troubled by them - but similarly attracts a wealth of pollinating insects and bees - and of course lavender honey has a wonderful flavour.
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
