Looking for beautiful flowers with a nice scent, then lavender is our recommended choice. Easy to grow and hard to find anything to dislike, it’s a popular choice for gardens.
If you want to start growing lavender in your garden, first find a spot which is well-lit. As it’s a Mediterranean herb, it grows much better in hot weather. Also try to shelter the spot as much as possible, to protect the lavender from wind. If you have no shelter, a large rock on the side of the plant will do, as it provides a form of shelter.
Although it’s more satisfying growing a plant from the seed, we recommended you purchase the actual lavender plant from your local garden center. Before you plant the lavender, water it in its pot. This will ensure that the roots are hydrated before they are planted.
