Lavender 'Kew Red'
Lavandula stoechas 'Kew Red'
A pretty lavender with crimson and purple flower heads. Dried lavender flower tea is nice and relaxing and can soothe headaches. It can also be used in baking and cocktails!
Avoid overwatering your lavender, most are killed with kindness! Keep in a very sunny spot. Prune immediately after flowering but do not cut into old wood. Replace plants after 3-4 years.
All herbs are planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
Choose whether you receive your herb planted up in an Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer - or if you already have a pot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot.
