Hidcote Blue Lavender: Lavandula Angustifolia 'Hidcote Blue' - 1GAL Pot CM Tall
Lavandula ang. 'Hidcote Blue' is a lavender variety with deep purple-blue flowers and a compact growth habit.
Caring for Lavandula angustifolia, commonly known as English lavender, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. This fragrant perennial thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. Plant it in a location that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. Lavender is drought-tolerant once established, so water sparingly and allow the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. Prune the plant in early spring to shape it and remove any dead or woody growth. Harvest the flowers just as they begin to open for various uses, such as sachets or essential oils. Lavender is generally resistant to pests and diseases, but monitor for any signs of trouble. With proper care, your Lavandula angustifolia will reward you with its beautiful aromatic blooms and provide a soothing atmosphere in your garden or landscape.
