Two great colours, one hot pot!

LAVAN-duet ™ is the combination of two Australian-bred Lavender plants in one pot to create a fantastic mix of colours for the pot, garden or patio. Strawberries and cream is at it's best in Spring but will continue to flower all year round with a combination of rosy pink and clear white flowers above the fragrant grey green foliage.

Lavender is ideal for the herb garden, landscaping & pots. Perfect for picking as cut-flowers, dried indoor decoration or potpourri.

LAVAN-duet will grow in a very wide range of conditions but must be protected from heavy frost. They are both heat and humidity tolerant.

LAVAN-duet lavender is intolerant of heavy or waterlogged soils. Improve drainage if necessary using well rotted organic matter or raised beds.

Space plants 30cm apart for a hedge or border

Dig the planting hole twice the width and depth of the pot that is being planted. Backfill with topsoil that has been improved with organic matter. Make sure that the rootball sits no lower than the surrounding soil.

Lavender is very drought tolerant once established however moderate watering for the first few months after planting will encourage stronger more vigorous plants. Watering directly on the soil rather than the foliage can help to reduce the possibility of fungal problems occurring.

Mulching is important to protect surface roots from extremes of temperature and helps to retain soil moisture. Mulch should be applied over the soil to 10cm deep. Keep mulch 5cm-10cm away from the base of the plant so as not to impede airflow which may lead to an increase in pest and disease problems.

Lightly trim after flowering to remove spent blooms and to maintain shape.

Fertilise in spring and summer using a high quality complete fertiliser.

Look out for this label in all good garden centres.
