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.

    Ideas for Standard Lavenders.

    • Standard Lavenders are a great feature in the garden and my favourite variety is the Lavender Dentata as it is at its best in winter when other beautiful plants (i.e. roses) are dormant. As Lavender means love and affection, standard lavenders are a beautiful feature for weddings attractively decorated with ribbons as table decorations or used in place of fresh flowers. Standard lavenders are only available via post to South Australian residents or alternatively from Shoppe located on site at Teatrick Lavender Estate.

    Benefits of growing lavender in your garden.

    standard lav stoechas
    • Lavender plants are hardy drought tolerant perennial plant.
    • All the grey foliage lavender plants are best used in a windy situation and are excellent to grow in poor soils especially suitable for coastal gardens.
    • Lavender plants need full sun and excellent drainage and a clipping after the flowering season
    • Lavender angustifolia has an evocative fragrance. By gently bruising the flowers a sweet fragrance is released. The benefits of this particular plant are that of companion planting. By planting close to the vegetable garden this lavender bush will attract the bees into the garden which will fertilize flowers of melons and tomatoes bringing on the season for these vegetables by 4 - 6 weeks.
