Lavender 'Thumbelina Leigh' ('Lavandula angustifolia  'Thumbelina Leigh' ) Herb in 9cm Pot

Lavender 'Thumbelina Leigh' is a dwarf, hardy, dark violet-purple lavender makes an easy to maintain hedge with grey-green foliage. The flowers are held on slightly stubbier and shorter stems than other angustifolia varieties approx 15-25cm tall.  The evergreen nature of the leaves make it an ideal hedging and garden plant as it will give structure to a garden throughout the year. The flowers are also particularly attractive to bees and produced in June. Lavender is a flowering plant in the family Lamiaceae, native to the Mediterranean region and as such prefers a light free-draining soil and an open sunny sheltered position. Lavender enjoys being cut back hard (to 2 cm above the hardwood) after flowering in mid Sept and to maintain a neat shape they can be trimmed again in Spring after the first flush of new growth. Ideally plants should be replaced every 3-4 years as they will eventually become woody at the base especially if not regularly pruned, however,  with the correct regular pruning they can last much longer.
