A garden classic, Lavender is known for its soothing aroma, green foliage and tall purple flower spikes. Adored not only for its beauty but also for its medical and culinary attributes - it's uses are almost endless! 

A compact shrub, native to the Mediterranean, the most common, English Lavender (
Lavandula angustifolia) is beloved for its ease of care. As they are a Herbaceous perennial that does just fine with a bit of neglect. Simply plant them in soil with good drainage, in a spot that offers lots of sunshine and watch the pollinators flock!
