Lavender is perfect for the patio

Perfect for the Patio… Lavender ‘Avignon Early Blue’ is small and bushy with deep blue blooms and the strong fragrance of English lavender. Keep flowering plants in a warm, sheltered spot on the patio during winter and it will continue flowering into spring. Use the edible flowers in cooking or baking, and to flavour sugar. Cut off the dead blooms to encourage new flowers. In summer it can be planted out into the garden or into outdoor containers.  It is suitable for our hot, dry summers, being able to tolerate heat better than stoechas varieties.
