Thanks Artjak but this type of lavender (Angustifolia) thrives in the mountains here, it was the pride of the garden before the rainfall this summer which was 7 times the usual volume on just one day. We are 900m up and really do have cool temps at night. Think it really is a case of sorting the drainage ready for next year and the sharp drainage as per WW. We have many roses too, the land is very fertile clay based so much work is needed introuducing more well drained soil. Just wish we had more time as we are in Rio mon-thurs and im too stubborn to employ somebody to help!! You work in the Carribean must have been a joy. Many thanks for the advice however and good luck on your next ventures!
