I know it's really late for this season, but I just had to buy 9 or 10 lavender plants. but I am really committed to giving these guys a fighting chance for this season. I'm ready to babysit because I wanted them so badly.
My question is how should I lay these all out? Should I keep the same kinds together or put tall ones in the back no matter what they are? some are 2 of a kind, theres also 3 of a kind on another one or two.
would you make a lavender only flower bed or would you mix them in with other beds already in progress?
I have a new mantis =). ... I'm just having too many undecided moments
My friend and neighbor just cleared an area about 20' x 10' to plant lavender. Its on the hill side and gets alot of morning sun. She has her other lavender in a kind of rock garden. That on is doing wonderful. She has two different types, not sure which is which, but one is almost white. It is the most fragrant lavender I have ever sniffed. They are both in thier own beds.
I guess there's no wrong place, I probably should have stuck to getting all the same of what's best for my area (spanish lavender), but I had to get some of the BlueCushion, Hidcote, and what she called Lavender Lavance; I should look those up, but sounds French to me.
Today I'm ready to split them up in diff beds. oh well. there's always next year =)
