Pink Lavender Hedging Plants - Lavandula angustifolia Rosea

Pink Lavender is an evergreen shrub that carries lilac pink flowers above silvery grey foliage from early summer into August. Lavender's fragrance is justly famous and its compact, sturdy growth make it an ideal edging plant or a superb low hedge to 2ft - 60cms tall. Pink lavender - like any lavender likes a sunny position and needs well drained soil - 'wet feet' in waterlogged soil in winter can kill your plant. Otherwise, it is a very hardy plant that is not on most rabbit's menus, which makes it very attractive to gardeners in those areas blessed with them. A lavender hedge's aroma permeates the air around a seated area, creating a zone of summer tranquility that few plants can match. The flowers of all lavenders are a favourite of bees and butterflies, giving you an aerial display as you sit back and enjoy the heady scent of the full blooms.

PLEASE NOTE: Delivery of lavender is weather dependent. In a warm spring we start shipping as early as April but if the weather is cold it can slip into May. There is nothing to be gained from trying to plant it out before night time temperatures rise consistently. The shock simply sets it back and it will establish more slowly and flower less well than lavender planted when everything is warmer. P9 lavenders are never shipped before the beginning of May in any event. If you are not happy with these timings, please order elsewhere - we guarantee our plants and like to see them do well.

Lavender's History and Uses

Its name comes from the Latin word lavare, to wash, as its heavenly smell made it so popular for use in Roman baths and laundries and it was even stuffed into bandages. The flower harvest from a pink lavender hedge can be used for making homemade lavender cooking oil and distilled essential oils that can be used in the bath, soap, as incense or in an invigorating massage. Pink lavender flowers also provide one way of making pink lemonade! Crucifixes woven from lavender were used to ward off evil for centuries, and the old belief that couples who used lavender to fragrance their bed sheets would never argue is probably due to the fact that pleasant, relaxing smells are great for helping people to get a good night's sleep. For more about lavender, please also have a look at blue flowering Hidcote Lavender and White Lavender.

How to plant and prune Lavender

Your plants should go into the ground at 3 per metre ideally in mid-April spring as the ground is beginning to warm up. While they are establishing be sure to water them well if the weather is dry. Lavender likes to be clipped hard after flowering and it can be shape gently again in late March. We have mixed feelings about cutting into brown, woody parts of the stems - we do at home, but some people think it kills the plant. So to be safe, always leave a little green shoot on each stem that you trim and make sure there are a couple of buds left on the shoot.

PLEASE NOTE THE MINIMUM ORDER FOR PINK LAVENDER IS 8 POTS
