LAVENDER - JUNE

In the first month of summer, lavender is at the top of everyone's list! The best-known lavender species is Lavandula angustifolia. The flowers of Lavandula angustifolia are usually blue-purple, but can also be pink (rosea) or white (alba). Lavandula angustifolia is hardy and is beautiful in large pots on the terrace or as a low hedge. It is a plant with many benefits: the fragrance is wonderful for us but also for beneficial insects such as bees and butterflies. The flowers can be dried for a drying bouquet or scented bags to freshen up a linen closet or for a soothing effect in your pillow, or you can even use lavender in the kitchen.

Lavender is easy to care for: the plant likes an open, sunny spot in poor soil and can withstand drought well. In pots, they do need some extra water, but watch out for wet feet! The shrub should be pruned twice a year to prevent woodiness: in spring and at the end of summer, after flowering. Pruning in spring ensures that sufficient light can reach the base, otherwise the plant will become bare inside. In autumn, it is mainly about shape pruning.

Besides lavandula angustifolia, the best-known species are Lavandula intermedia (slightly taller than the angustifolia) and Lavandula Stoechas or crested/butterfly lavender. Butterfly lavender is less hardy and thus rather desires a sunny sheltered spot or overwintering indoors. This species flowers earlier than angustifolia and does not have the typical lavender scent, but smells more like pine.
