The evergreen shrub, Lavender x intermedia Grosso bears long stems of very fragrant violet flowers in summer, which are excellent for drying. The hardy English lavender hybrid makes a wonderful informal hedge or can be clipped for a more formal shape. These flowers attract bees and other pollinators and can be used, alongside its leaves, to flavour biscuits, stews and soups. 


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.
