better way to delight the senses than by gardening, but how
better to delight the sense of smell than filling your garden
with the beautiful perfume of Lavender.
Lavender is a worldwide famous herb grown for its sweet
scent and its lovely grey to green foliage and mauve
coloured flowers. Lavender is also reputed to contain medicinal
properties that help stimulate and improve health. One thing
is for sure, Lavender is a delight to grow because whenever
you touch or brush past it, it perfumes the air with its
wonderful sweet smell.
To grow Lavender, it requires a sunny position and does not
like shade at all. It will grow very well in pots and makes
a wonderful sight in terracotta pots. Most importantly, it
needs good drainage. If growing in pots, for good strong and
healthy growth use Searles® Herb and Vegetable Specialty Mix.
When growing Lavender in the garden, be sure to position it
in a sunny well drained position. To prepare the soil, dig
in some 5 IN 1® Organic Plant Food before planting.
SWEET LOVING LAVENDER
Lavender also likes a sweet soil, of neutral to alkaline pH,
so it will help to mix some Dolomite into the soil before
WATERING & FERTILISING
Lavender will grow very well with minimum maintenance. They
will only need watering once to twice a week and an occasional
fertilising with Searles Flourish® Soluble Plant Food.
To keep them growing well, be sure to regularly prune them.
Not only will this keep them compact, but you will be delighted
with their marvellous perfume.
