How long till I get my lavender hedge?
I replaced some old tired lavender bushes with Lavandula Hidcote two summers ago. I had a small hedge in a corner by a gate, and the old plants were a little too big for the spot and sprawled all over the path. I replaced them with 4 Hidcote plants which were about 9-10 inches in height each. Two seasons later and they are scarcely any bigger, nowhere near 'joining up'. Is this variety particularly difficult or slow to grow? This particular spot in the garaden has had lavender in it for the last fifteen years so I didnt imagine I would have a problem. Many thanks if you have comments.
