  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June and July

    Selected for its compact habit and abundant lilac flowers in late spring. Suitable for production in smaller pots. Selected by John Burrows of Pro-Veg. Seeds in less than ideal conditions for Lavenders - on east facing clay-gravel soil in East Anglia

    As it's borderline hardy it is best grown in a container in colder areas of the country and should be over-wintered in a cool greenhouse or conservatory.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded to retain a compact shape. Carefully trim back in April, taking care not to cut into old wood.
