This means it will need to be pruned to about
two feet. This will allow for growth to reach the two and a-half to three
foot mark the following season. This measurement does not include the height
of the blooms which add another two feet or more.
The vibrant purple Grappenhall Lavender plants on the left are in full bloom.
They will bloom for about four weeks before they start to look spent. In
that time, the bees will have a field day and the air will be sweetly
scented when the plant is disturbed by man or nature.
Grappenhall Lavender has long flower stems and makes a good
cut flower for bouquets or other crafts. For drying, cut when the
first buds open at the top of the flower wand. Both the leaves and the
flowers make good additions to potpourri and can be used in cooking. Try
blending Grappenhall Lavender with other culinary lavenders, like
Jean Davis English Lavender, for use
