#ProPlantTips For Care

For best results, your English Munstead Lavender must be planted in full sun. Thriving in the heat and high humidity, Lavender lives for the hot weather and soaking up as much light as possible.

Lavender prefers well-drained soil with low moisture, however can tolerate poor soils, so long as they are well-drained. The root system does poorly in soggy conditions. Water regularly only while it's first establishing, but then cut back once it's established.

Highly disease resistant, Munstead thrives without much attention, and rarely needs pruning. If needed, wait until spring before removing any potentially damaged stems, just as it starts to grow. However, in areas with heavy snow, a pruning in fall when Munstad is dormant will prevent any of the branches from breaking under the weight.

While this selection is smaller, compact, and slower growing, that just means it will not overcrowd your gardens or outgrow its containers. The perfect size to fit everywhere without overshadowing its neighbors. Munstead plays well with all other perennials, shrubs, and herbs in form, color, and size.

Begin your peaceful garden journey towards serenity today with the tranquility only English Munstead Lavender can provide.
