Lavender Special

Lavender is a fantastically versatile plant and has plenty of different uses in a garden. Whether as a culinary plant, for use in a border, something to add scent to a garden or to attract bees and butterflies, Lavender does them all.

In this newsletter we have an optimistic summer Lavender Honey Salad Recipe and Victoria Hunt talks about "Why Lavender is my firm favourite".

We also have a guide to planting lavender or if your garden already has them a guide to pruning lavender and, in case you missed it, we've also got a list of jobs in the garden for April.

Lavender Honey Salad Recipe

Lavender honey has such a beautiful flavour that we didn't want to spoil it by mixing it with anything.

For this recipe we use goat’s cheese to make a simple, but delicious salad. The perfect way to ease yourself into eating lighter foods as the temperature warms this spring.

Urban Gardener: Softening Transistions

Designers will often talk about ‘softening’ edges or marking transitions in your garden. A solid structure can often lead to harsh boundaries, right angles and edges. Well thought out planting will not only soften these edges but bring them alive, turning the edge to a key focal point in the garden.

Why Lavender is my firm favourite

Choosing a poor frame for a picture is the equivalent of getting exquisitely dressed up for a party and not wearing any make-up.

I think this same analogy can also be used for a garden. Lavender is a beautiful framer for any border and enriches the colours and plants it surrounds.
