English Lavender 'Munstead'
This beautiful, compact lavender is ideal for planting on the edge of a border. The aromatic fragrance of the blue-purple flowers will attract lots of beneficial insects. Needs full sun and, for best results, prune out the spent flower heads in the autumn, followed by cutting back completely in the spring to ensure fresh, vigorous growth.
Wild bees and other pollinators are in decline. This plant is recommended specifically by the RHS as part of the RHS plants for pollinators scheme. This scheme helps gardeners to easily identify plants that encourage bees and pollinators back into the garden.
You can find a variety of alternative plants for beneficial insects here.
Perennials are plants that live for more than 2 years, generally flowering annually and dying back during the winter. Our range has been specially selected to help you create colourful displays in your garden which will attract and benefit insects such as butterflies and bees. Choosing a variety of plants that flower at different times will help to ensure your garden looks beautiful and sustains the wildlife across the seasons.
Our plants may be delivered in an infant or dormant state but once exposed to sunlight, they will resume growing. We also recommend using a fertiliser or soil conditioner when repotting or relocating into the garden to help them establish quickly.
