I have tried so many gimmicky lavenders over the years ...from pink n white, red n white, variegated etc including the white flowered ones
Blue is the colour.....cut to,the chase!
Both Munstead and hidcote are perfectly good lavenders..don't,think there's a lot between them
Good drainage...extra grit will do no harm at all....sunshine and good ventilation should mean good plants.
I have a lavender hedge on one side of my veg patch and it's been no trouble for 6 or 7 years, maybe longer. It's cut back hard after flowering in mid to late summer. Admittedly it's mild here but lavender isnt too,difficult. Drainage and sun.
