More Details

Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote' is the most floriferous of the compact lavenders, with purple-blue flowers. Incredibly reliable.

Lavenders – with my new pollinator obsessed hat on – are the perfect plants. Lavender 'Hidcote' looks good all year, has incredible scent, which lasts when dried AND is rich in pollen and nectar for much of summer so the bees and butterflies love it. Add plenty of grit before you plant 'Hidcote' if you garden on heavy clay soil like mine at Perch Hill.

The plants were really healthy when they arrived, I kept them in their pots for quite a few weeks before planting and they are now flowering. Some of my order was missing and Customer Services were really polite, friendly and efficient and my missing lavenders arrive shortly after. Overall really pleased!

The plants are alive but haven't grown very well , probably due to the very dry conditions when they were planted out, even though we watered daily .

Arrived in good condition and growing well even despite the poor soil in our front garden. The flowers are a lovely vibrant purple - will buy more of these next year.

The plants were excellent. Howe the service was not so good for me as I had ordered a number of plants and all were delivered on different days spanning a period of about 3 weeks with only one day’s notice if the delivery days. There was no possibility of arranging a different delivery date. I was away quite a bit over this period with the consequence that on various occasions the plants were simply left outside for a few days with the risk of dying.

Efficient delivery and packing. However, once unpacked one of the litttle lavenders looked very dubious but I gave it a chance. In fact I should have returned it as it did prove to be a non starter - and I think now that it should never have been included in the multipack and I should have returned it. However, busy life and no time to argue over one dead mini plant. I cant imagine you would appreciate a photo of 2 living lavenders and 1 dead plant looking much as it did when it arrived!

These are just wonderful and the most perfect deep lavender. They are doing really well (better than anything else this year) and look great in zinc pots with pinks and whites
