Things we love about lavender... 
 - Sweetly scented flowers in a range of colours from deep purple to pale pink
 - Fantastic for attracting bees, butterflies and beneficial insects
 - Easy to grow in a sunny spot and looks good all year round 

Lavender will thrive best in a sunny position in well drained soil. Remove flower stalks when blooms fade and prune back as hard as required, but always ensure that there are some small green shoots visible below where you have cut.
