Just a quick note to say many thanks for organising the 'Fruit Tree Favourites' gift for my mother; she was so touched to receive the hand written Christmas Card with my personal message. This is my first attempt at purchasing gifts on-line since leaving the UK. Your service is fantastic - Thank You

Also known as True Lavender or English Lavender, Lavandula angustifolia (formerly known as officinalis, a reflection of its medicinal properties).

Angustifolia (from it's official Botanical name) means 'narrow-leaved', reminding us that these plants will happily thrive in hot, dry conditions, all the better to encourage the development of the essential oils that give the leaves and flowers their distinctive, much-loved fragrance. Native to the Mediterranean.

According to the herbalist Nicholas Culpepper, 'a decoction made with the flowers of Lavender, Horehound, Fennel, Asparagus root and a little Cinnamon is very profitably used to help the falling-sickness (epilepsy) and the giddiness or turning of the brain.'

Lavandula angustifolia 'Alba' is a robust evergreen shrub with silver-grey foliage and long flower spikes, pure white and very fragrant.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
