When should I plant English Lavender hedging?
The best time to plant your English Lavender is during the spring season.
How far apart do you plant English Lavender plants?
You should space your Lavender plants around 35-40cm apart, depending on how large the plant is - 45cm apart being for larger plants.
How to plant English Lavender:
Fork over the soil nicely and incorporate plenty of grit into the soil if it is quite heavy.
Next, dig a hole that is the same depth but slightly wider than the plant's root ball, and place the plant into the hole. Backfill with the excess soil and press down lightly to secure the plant.
Ensure you then continue to water the plant(s) for the first year after planting - though Lavender will tolerate drought stress, and thrives particularly well in dry soil, so not as much water is needed and the plant can usually look after itself after the first year.
