Spring has arrived:

Replanting underway of the original english lavender bushes

  • Lavender Flowering Season

    The most important aspect of these plants is that they thrive on neglect and don’t like wet feet. It is therefore wise to produce gardens that work within our climatic conditions and not only does lavender approve the drier conditions it is beneficial as a companion plant in the garden. At this time of the year, the lavender flowers attract bees which in turn can fertilize tomato or melon flowers. Nature working at its best!

    Delightful standard, hedged and bordered Lavender dentata’s in full flower swaying in this wind.

    Hot purples of the stoechas family are a sight to see as well as over hundred roses in flower including favourite Standard David Austin Roses, Heritage, Mary Rose and the Pilgrim. In the southern garden the lilacs have been outstanding with bushes of white, lilac, deep purple and the most unusual white edged deep purple petal flowers with a perfume so sweet.
