Mixed Lavender Hedge

Posted: 05/01/2016 at 16:24

Sam, personally I would go for one variety only.  A  5 metre run of blue lavendar is unbeatable.  

I think a mixture would look odd too.  Don't contrive or over elaborate is my advice.

go for Munstead or Hidcote.  Both excellent

Mark, buy a bigger plant or two and simply separate and pot up.  Easy,,effective...prob quicker than plugs

Hosta....you have a thick skin so that's good.   There will always be people who attack others ...just focus on those you are comfortable with.  Always found bullies to be cowards.....stand up to them and they wilt 

Right now it is sunny.....sunny and dry.

I too think a hedge in a container is a no go

susan, when you say planter do you mean a raised bed?  

Think about planting in the ground if you can

Dove, I have dwarf pittos that, if unpruned, would grow forever.  I have long learned to take suppliers' claims re growth rates with a pinch of salt.  I have many plants of assorted types that are far larger than generally described.   A decent guide only but often  misleading
