Lavender gets its name from the Latin for to wash, due to the universal ancient Roman custom of abluting with lavender water. Lavenders are Mediterranean plants and, although usually found in the wild on limestone, they will thrive in any hot, well-drained soil. Lavenders should not be grown in shade. Like many Mediterranean aromatic shrubs, they have a limited life and after 10 years or so become woody and gaunt and will need replacing. Lavenders should be lightly clipped in autumn, then in spring, they should be cut back hard, removing all the previous season’s growth. Lavender Hidcote, because of its compact habit, is often used for low hedges.
