A dwarf variety of English lavender notable for its very dark purple flowers and narrow grey leaves, Lavender angustifolia Hidcote is an excellent addition to the kitchen garden. Its leaves and flowers can be used to flavour biscuits, stews and soups, but it is also useful as a low hedge, or attractive border or container plant. It is a recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence. 

Grown in peat free compost in a biodegradable pot made from waste coir and natural latex. Remove plant from pot or cut/tear away some of the coir if the plant is well rooted and hard to remove.

  • Flowers: July- September
  • Moist, well-drained soil
  • South, West or East aspect
  • Full sun
  • Sheltered
  • Pop the discarded coir pot in the green bin, leave out for birds to use for nesting, use as mulch or add to compost heap
  • Cut back after flowering to prevent woody stems but avoid cutting into old wood
  • Coir pots are supplied by one specific village producer in Sri Lanka. They have built a school, old people's home and extension to the local medical centre over the years from the proceeds of coir pot production
