Talkback: How to create a lavender garden

I miss Monty Don!, but I will have a go at getting my lavender looking good this yr. Cheers for that video clip.


  • great tips Monty, had wonderful lavender last year, lovely in cakes and cookies, put some in your pocket when you go out and every now and then you can touch the Lavender to create a lovely sent in the air. and of great benefit placed under your pillow at night, great stuff.
  • video too short
  • so lovely to see monty again...miss him loads.....this video has answered my question as to why i'm never successful with lavender!!.....USE GRIT!!

    Good video but too short and it is not clear when is the best time to plant and hard prune, as he just says "now".
  • That'll be why I struggle with lavender - my garden soil is clay-based. Drainage is obviously the key!
  • Very useful - but how annoying that the camera is more on Monty rather than what he's doing. I'd have liked to see him trimming the plants in more detail.
  • Was over all too quickly, wanted to hear when the best time is to prune back and when they can be moved frustrating!
  • Yes what time of year do we prune back hard and when is best to plant young plants out with the grit of course??
  • Not what I expected - followed the link to find out how to take lavender cuttings and grow new plants. No information on that at all! Interesting tip about the grit though, I'll do that (next time!)
  • I also would like to know what time of year do we prune back hard
