Spanish Lavender is one of the most eye-catching with bright flowers ranging from deep plums to pastel pinks. 

Design tip: Lavender is best planted in the garden in swathes of colour. It also looks splendid planted along gravel-lined pathways. Pair it with contrasting bold colours or prairie grasses for a softer effect.

Plant comes in a black grow pot. Decorative planters sold separately.

Growing lavender

Light

Full sun. Lavender performs best in full sun. It needs at least six hours a day to bloom profusely.

Water

Lavender is droubt tolerant when established and prefers the soil to dry out between watering. However, give your newly planted lavender a good soaking every few days in hot summers when the soil is dry, especially if it is in a pot.

Feeding

Lavender grows best in nutrient poor, sandy soil - think Provence, Tuscany and the mediterranean which has rockier soils (also good for viticulture). Therefore too much fertiliser will harm the plant, leading to leaf production at the expense of flowers. A good handful of compost around the plant in Spring, and a sprinkle of slow release organic pellets should more than suffice for the year.

Re-potting

Lavender likes being re-potted every year to a larger container. Regular well draining potting soil will do, with added fine gravel or succulent mix to help the mixture drain well.

Atrium Top Tip

Lavenders do get leggy after 2-3 years, and usually need to be replaced. We've found that dead-heading spent flowers helps regenerate thicker growth & new blooms.

Quirky plant fact

The name Lavender comes from the Latin word Lavare, meaning 'to wash'. Lavender was essential in Roman Times for bathing rituals becuase of its antisepctic properties. Egyptians also used Lavender during mummification.
