Why We Love It
Why We Love It
‘Anouk’ is a fragrant French lavender, which flowers earlier in the season than English varieties and continues blooming until late summer.
Originally hailing from the Mediterranean, this evergreen shrub has aromatic, silvery-green leaves and is covered with dark purple flowers from May to September. The distinctive tufts on top start off violet and fade to pink as they mature.
As well as being hardy, this versatile shrub is hugely attractive to your favourite garden pals like bees and other pollinators.
Lavender has the magical power of transforming gardens into chic spaces, whether you’re going for a contemporary look or cottage garden charm. You can grow ‘Anouk’ in a low, fragrant hedge to set off borders or plant it up in a stylish container for your patio. Combine with other herbs and let the summery scent float through your window.
The decorative pot is sold separately. Find the perfect base for any style of planting, explore our full range of pots here.
How to Plant
How to Plant
Your lavender is best planted in spring (March to May) or autumn (October to November). Recreate its Mediterranean origins by placing it in a full sun spot with well-drained soil. It prefers neutral to alkaline soil but will also manage in acidic conditions.
Into the Ground
When you're ready to give your ‘Anouk’ a new home, gather a trowel, horticultural grit and a watering can.
- Work some horticultural grit into the soil to prepare it for your plant.
- Dig a hole twice the size of the shrub's rootball.
- Plant your lavender, backfill with soil and firm down. Water in well.
- Every year, cut back after flowering to prevent any woody stems – late August and early September are ideal times.
- Your new plant favours dry conditions, though remember to water regularly for the first few months after planting.
Into a Pot
Miniature lavender flourishes in patio pots. Grab a trowel, a large pot (terracotta works well), horticultural grit and a watering can.
- Fill your container with potting compost, mixing in horticultural grit for drainage.
- Dig a hole double the size of your lavender's rootball and place it in.
- Backfill with soil, firm down and water in.
- Every year, prune back generously in late summer to keep your plant looking fresh.
- Water regularly while your plant makes itself at home.
