Lavandula stoechas CARIENSIS
Growing Tip #1
Flowering now are the Lavandula stoechas lavenders (with the butterfly wings on top). They look gorgeous and will brighten up any spring garden. They are purely ornamental so are not used for drying or for oil production. You will need to replace these varieties after 3 - 4 years.
Deadhead your stoechas lavenders to encourage continuous flowering throughout the summer months.
Growing Tip #2
If you have problems battling with the rabbits and pukekos when you put in new plants, try this 'defence fence'. It stops them digging out the baby plants and nibbling off tasty green shoots.
Leafy Hollow is far more than just a lavender garden
