Could anyone recommend a nice colourful, fragrant Lavender ( and where to purchase if online) please? I have chalky soil.
Just remember that the French types (the ones with the 'bunny ears') are not as hardy as the English varieties
Always a good idea to improve drainage by digging in some grit before planting
I've had excellent experience with Downderry Nursery. They have a very informative website as well.
I bought Augustifola and as long as youplant it west facing to get the sun its hardy and does well... Iwas lucky and purchased a 6 pack of good sized plants for £1.99p from Lidl supermarket last year... They look good too.. My locally garden centre wanted £6.99p for one plant and not much larger either....
