In love with lavender

Lavender ‘With Love’ is a gorgeous Australian-bred lavender that has beautiful fragrant pink flowers with delightful ruffled tops. It will flower for many months, with peak flowering from late winter through spring.

Growing to around 60 cm tall and wide, it has a compact, neat mounded shape, with flowers held tight to the foliage. It’s ideal for planting in full sun or partly shaded garden beds and also containers. It suits cottage and Mediterranean gardens, hedging and is also a great choice for including in and around vegie patches as the flowers attract beneficial pollinating insects.

It’s dry tolerant once established. A light prune after the main flowering flush followed by another during late summer will encourage a bushy habit.

Lavender benefits from applications of Yates® Thrive® Natural Roses & Flowers Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food around the root zone every 6-8 weeks of both in-ground and potted plants. Yates® Thrive® Natural Roses & Flowers Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food contains a special combination of more than 50% natural ingredients, boosted with fast acting fertilisers, including flower-promoting potassium, to encourage both vigorous green leaf growth and masses of flowers.

Lavender tip: potted Lavender ‘With Love’ can be brought inside in a brightly lit spot for up to two weeks, before being planted outside into a permanent home.
