Lavender Dwarf Blue is a robust cultivar of Lavandula Angustifolia – commonly known as the English Lavender. It is a compact and highly fragrant evergreen that offers uniform growth. Its flowers are light blue on shortish stems that proliferate from mid to late summer. Removing old flowers will encourage the appearance of new ones. It overwinters well and is therefore an excellent and more reliable alternative to the similar, but far less hardy, Lavandula Angustifolia Munstead.

Lavender Dwarf Blue plants are easy to keep tidily squared off or alternatively left to form a more natural and informal flowering border or boundary hedge. It also grows well in pots, tubs and rockeries.

Hedge

We are a family-owned horticultural business and one of the UK's leading growers and wholesalers. Founded in 1983 on a nine acre greenfield site in West Oxfordshire being well placed between Oxford, Abingdon, Wantage, Banbury, Cheltenham, and Swindon. We now produce over 330,000 garden plants (including 40,000 lavenders alone). We have created Hedge Xpress (sometimes mistakenly referred to as Hedgeexpress) to offer a selection of quality garden hedging plants direct to you at competitive prices. We grow hedging plants suitable for all types of garden situations, whether purely ornamental or for boundaries or lavenders for edging. The range listed here includes versatile varieties and those most suited to the UK climate and soils. The Hedge Guide will help you to find the right hedging plants or lavender plants for your garden.  

Committed to quality

As all container plants are grown on site we have complete control over all aspects of quality and handling. Strict supervision and rigorous daily monitoring ensure that we focus on producing healthy, robust hedging and lavender plants. Bare root hedging plants are carefully sourced from areas with deep sandy soils to have strong fibrous root systems. Hedging plants are perishable and we know that quality control is as important to our clients as price. We deploy a highly efficient gantry system, very rarely seen in the UK. This results in a much more consistent crop, with less picking through and grading required at dispatch and significantly less water used.  

Empathy with the environment

We operate an eco-friendly policy, walking the crops regularly to control pests, fungus or bacterial infection. We try to encourage predators rather than apply pesticides, particularly in controlling whitefly, aphids and red spider mites. The trick is to anticipate problems before they occur. A red spider can lay 200 viable eggs within a five-day life cycle. We use a polythene film to filter out certain wavelengths, reducing aphid population by inhibiting mobility and breeding.
