A must have plant for anyone who is
trying to create the cottage garden look. Lavender Hidcote is a compact plant
growing to a height of only 14 inches, perfect for edging or creating a low growing hedge.
Its beautiful blue-green foliage is evergreen and remains attractive throughout the year.

the summer with fish emulsion or seaweed extract. Lavender must be grown in dry
soils - it will not tolerate wet feet. To improve your soils drainage add pea gravel or
