Growing Calendar for Lavender 'Platinum Blonde' 3L Potted Shrub
Delivery: Early February to Early November
Add this charming versatile lavender shrub to your garden; it is perfect for putting just about anywhere in your outdoor space, be in pots, hanging baskets or flower beds. Its attractive evergreen gold-edge leaves and deliciously-scented flowers are furthered by its mesmerising fragrance, making this plant the perfect all-rounder.
It’s evergreen. Fantastic news - you can plant this lovely lavender and get ample returns on its golden-edge leaves that reveal themselves 365 days of the year.
Consider growing on the vegetable patch to protect a row of low-growing crops like carrots. You’ll smell the captivating flowers in summer and have a low hedge of lovely leaves all year round too.
No garden? Fear not- plant these in pots to adorn a doorway or even grow indoors on a sunny windowsill beneath an open-window throughout the summer. Grow one plant in the centre of a 12in (30cm) diameter pot and it will fill the space with each year. Excellent.
How your plants arrive
You receive our plant as 3 litre potted specimen with an established root network for great growing potential.
This is perfect for planting between November and April when your plants can concentrate on developing strong roots underground before putting on more leaf -growth in spring. The roots are itching to get established in the ground which then provide water and nutrients to strong leafy branches in the growing season.
Your potted plant will arrive in a polythene bag so the stems and leaves are treated to a warm and humid environment great for their health. Your plant may also be bound in some corrugated cardboard to keep the plant in place and supported while being transported from our nursery to your doorstep.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you can't plant up your potted shrub straight away keep your potted plant in a sunny position and keep the soil moist by watering each day. Look to planting into its permanent position within 5-7 days.
If you have any queries please contact our customer service team.
Shrubs offer visual interest all year round – whether in full leaf, full bloom or with bare stems set against the winter sky.
If you want to add height to your garden and increase the vertical interest consider planting a tree in your garden. There are trees particularly suited for gardens which don’t grow out of proportion to your property or develop too thick a canopy that blocks out sunlight.
