"Munstead Lavender is an old favourite. It is a dwarf variety of Lavender and therefore suitable for planting in smaller urban gardens on in containers. It can be used effectively to make a low growing fragrant hedge.
There is something about the smell of Lavender that we find re-assuring, comforting and soothing. And the flowers look really cool!
We think that it is massively worth growing as bees flock around the flowers as a nectar source in mid to late summer providing a much needed source of pollination.
RANDOM FACT ALERT. Apparently Queen Victoria used Lavender when making biscuits and we know it remains popular with cake and bake fans today."
