Lavender

Lavendel Pflanzen kaufen

Those who know the lavender fields of Provence, which enchant the landscape with their blue colour, will not forget this experience in a hurry. How nice that the dream of fragrant lavender, even on a smaller scale, can be realised in your own garden. You can buy many different lavender plants in the Lubera shop that thrive either in pots or in flower beds. All of the types and varieties offered are reliably hardy. The flowering period of these evergreen, woody shrubs is from June to August.

Lavender Plants

Depending on the variety, you can get dozens of small flowers in classic lavender blue, light pink or even pure white. They attract butterflies, bees and bumblebees in droves and delight everyone who passes by with their refreshing, tart, spicy fragrance, which always awakens memories of the warm south. No wonder that lavender is one of the most well-known and popular garden plants in the world.

Lavender Plants From The Online Lubera Garden Shop

Wondering when you can buy lavender plants? In the Lubera garden shop, they are available throughout the planting season. True lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is native to the Mediterranean region or the Canary Islands and, therefore, loves the heat! If you want to buy and plant lavender, the best time to do so is from mid-May, when frost is no longer expected and the soil has already warmed up. Lavender likes a location in full sun in loose, slightly sandy soil and it copes well with drought.

The name lavender refers to the Latin word "lavare" (= washing). Even the Romans are said to have appreciated lavender for the production of fragrant bath products. Like sage, lavender belongs to the mint family (Lamiaceae). Its evergreen leaves are grey-green in colour and almost reminiscent of needles. Depending on the variety, it reaches a height of between 40 and 100 centimetres with its long, mature inflorescences.

Lavender Combinations In Perennial Beds

A classic, often seen use of this semi-shrub is in combination with different roses. But they do not always have to be planted with roses to work well. Lavender also works very well in an ornamental bed with perennial flowering shrubs such as various types of geranium, colourful yarrow (Achillea), dark-leaved stonecrop (Sedum), black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta), coneflower (Echinacea) or torch lily (Kniphofia), and also with different ornamental grasses. High growing lavender varieties, such as Lavandula x intermedia `Grosso`, are recommended in combination with large perennials. Its flowering shoots grow up to a metre in height. Smaller varieties, on the other hand, are excellently suited for borders, and for this, compact, rather low-maintenance varieties such as Lavandula angustifolia `Nana Alba` are perfect. Lavender can also be easily used on roof terraces by placing the plants singly or several together in decorative containers. Likewise, lavender plants can also be integrated into summer group borders. In the Lubera garden shop you can buy lavender in 0.5 litre pots.

Maintain Lavender Properly

So that the lavender plants do not lose their shape from below, regular pruning is important. This also ensures that the vitality and willingness to flower remains over the years. After flowering, you first remove only the withered shoots. The actual pruning takes place only in the coming spring, as soon as the lavender starts the growth phase. Then you may even cut back to the woody parts of the plant in order to encourage the plants to produce new, bushy shoots. Fertilisers are usually not necessary because the lavender flourishes well in low-nutrient soils according to its natural location.

Preserve The Lavender Scent

The scent of lavender can be stored in sachets over the winter. In addition, one can cut a part of the blooms, if they have not yet reached their climax, which is usually between mid-July and early August. Bind the cut branches and hang them upside down in a shady, well-ventilated place until dry. The flowers can then be added to self-made flower bath salts or a tea blend to give them a very special scent. Incidentally, lavender is not only ornamental but it is also a medicinal plant. It has an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect, and also has a nourishing and soothing effect. It is very worthwhile to buy lavender. It is a most undemanding plant that can be used in the garden and home.  If you plant it in a sunny spot and cut it back regularly, it will delight you year after year with its unmistakable fragrance that brings a touch of the Provence to your home garden.
