Has anyone grown lavender on a small scale, Hidcote or Munstead in particular. I know it can look fantastic when used in large planting schemes, but I'm talking about maybe 10 plants grown in close proximity to each other in a small space, interspersed between other plants and roses. Many thanks.
Interesting insight on how to use it on a small scale. Sounds pretty much how I would like to grow it, amongst roses and other perennials.
How long is the flowering season and, considering we aren't often blessed with long hot summers in the north (assuming it is the Wrea Green near Blackpool) how does it seem to cope with our weather.
@edhelka have you tried growing any tender lavenders? I tried last year without much success, they die at temperatures below +5 degrees.
