Lavender is perfect for a sunny spot in the garden with well-drained soil - it likes to get its roots deep into a stony soil. If grown in containers, lavender needs deep pots and compost containing plenty of grit. Trim the plant well immediately after flowering to maintain attractive and bushy growth. These plants are large enough for you to take clippings for propagation or to use in cooking or fragrant bouquets.
