Laven­der hedge tips

Go Gardening - - Advertorial -

Choose a sunny, well drained po­si­tion.

Choose plants that are even in size and sym­met­ri­cal. Space plants slightly less than the width on the la­bel. Keep plant spac­ing even and use a plum line for straight­ness.

Wa­ter well to es­tab­lish.

When trim­ming re­move no more than a third the to­tal size to avoid dam­age from over-prun­ing.

Feed laven­ders to en­hance flower power with a slow re­lease fer­tiliser in spring and au­tumn.
