Lavender 'Twickel Purple'(Lavandula angustifolia 'Twickel Purple')Herb in 1 Litre Pot

Lavender Twickel Purple is a strongly aromatic shrub growing 20-40cm tall, and is well-recognised for its beautiful scented flowers and grey-green foliage. The flowers of Lavender 'Twickel Purple' are dark-purple, produced on spikes at the top of slender, leafless stems 10–30 cm long, and are particularly attractive to bees.

 As a compact lavender, although a slightly larger-growing lavender for the angustifolia 'type', it works well when grown at the front of borders, in pots or as part of an  informal cottage style scheme. 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.  

Herb Usage

The flowers of all Lavenders have long been harvested for their essential oil, as well as its insect repellent properties, infusions can ease headaches and encourage restfulness. Dried Flower heads can be used in Lavender pillows to freshen clothes in drawers.  Dried Flowers can also be used in cooking such as lavender biscuits and even lavender ice-cream.
