Lavender is very popular and used in pot-pourri, dried flowers, perfume and in adding scent to linen (as well as helping to deter moths!). The scent is also thought to promote relaxation and a good night’s sleep.

A genus of about 25 species, the most well known are Lavandula stoechas (French lavender) and Lavandula x intermedia (English lavender). Bees love the high nectar content of many cultivars and produce lavender honey which is sold as a luxury product worldwide.

Lavender can be used in borders, rockeries or even as small hedges in warm, sunny spots.
