Having read oyher threads about people being dissappointed by some of the offers I felt I should say how delighted I am with my Lavenders. They arrived this morning beautifully packed.They are tiny but 36 plants fally healthy and bushyor the £4.90 is wonderful value. They are really healthy and bushy.

I totally agree with you, I received my Lavenders about 4 weeks ago and they are all growing into lovely strong healthy plants. They really are great value.

I also received my lavenders yesterday and I am very happy with mine as well.  Good value for money, I have not had any problems with T & M at all, can only say good things about them.

Me too, really impressed with sturdiness of the little plants

For ages I did'nt buy from T&M because of various problems but I sent off for the Lavender too. They arrived a couple of weeks ago and were in similar condition as yours, I was surprised and delighted. They're potted on and growing on well already in a mix of Perlite and MP Compost.

I also received these recently and yes, they arrived exactly as in the photo, with a little dibber to poke them out of the plugs and then use to make a wee planting hole for them in a bigger pot.  They're all thriving and were fabulous value for hardly any money at all.  Best bargain I've had for a very long time, so a Big 'Thank You' to Thompson and Morgan!

Thank you.

Just snips the tops out-that will make urge the production of side shoots.

I bought the lavenders last year and they are beautiful. Lost one over the winter but the rest are doing fine the bees love them. Now waiting for the penstemons.

theinnercitygarden I ordered mine on 20th June and they arrived on 27th July

15/08/2012 at 18:51

I have potted my Lavenders on now into larger pots, I pinched the tips out and they are growing so well and look really healthy plants. The Bees are going to love them next year.

I too have potted mine into 3 inch pots and they are looking very healthy.  I think they are great value for money.  I won't plant them out now til next spring so they get a really good chance to grow into strong plants.
