    Munstead Lavender is a fragrant and beautiful dwarf English lavender that is sure to add a touch of elegance and charm to any garden.

    Native to the Mediterranean region, Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead' is an evergreen, small shrub known for its beautiful, fragrant deep lavender blue flowers in short loose spikes on short stems that bloom in summer before the regular species. The narrow, grayish-green foliage is also fragrant. Munstead Lavender is a compact and rounded English lavender known for its strong, distinctive scent, which is often used in aromatherapy and perfumery.

    Munstead Lavender is winter hardy below -10? and highly tolerant of heat, frost, drought, and nutrient-poor soil making it superb on slopes. Munstead may be slower growing than other Lavandula angustifolia cultivars but it makes up for it with a mass of blooms earlier than others and is the perfect choice for edging pathways. Excellent in a waterwise Mediterranean style landscape or herb garden, Munstead Lavender is also the ideal plant in a pollinator garden. Plant in a location where one can easily brush against it to release its lavender aroma.

    Lavender Munstead is a favorite among gardeners for its compact size, fragrance, drought tolerance, and low-maintenance, making it an excellent choice for beginners or busy gardeners.

    Plant Care

    To properly care for your Munstead Lavender, it is important to provide it with full sun and well-draining soil. Lavender prefers nutrient-poor, slightly alkaline soil that is loose and fast-draining.  Avoid planting in heavy clay soils that do not drain fast enough and can become waterlogged.  Plant your Munstead Lavender slightly above the ground’s soil level to compensate for soil settling which may occur and to prevent rot by directing water flow away from the main stem.

    Water regularly the first few weeks to help establish roots then reduce frequency and water as needed. Allow soil to dry in between waterings.  Plants can become floppy and weak if overwatered. Best to water in the early morning and avoid watering overhead. Fertilizer is generally not needed.

    Remove spent flowers to promote rebloom. Trim to shape in early spring and again in late summer after flowering.

    Recommended spacing if planting as a border is 12-20 inches apart.

    Munstead Lavender is perfect for adding fragrance and color to outdoor spaces. It is sure to make a beautiful addition to any garden.

    Q: Is it ok to add mulch around my Munstead Lavender?
    A: Generally speaking mulch is used to retain moisture in the soil. For Lavender, use of a decorative rock mulch may be best as this will reflect light and heat resulting in more fragrant blooms. A wood mulch may hold too much moisture for your Lavender, especially if it is a heavy clay.

    Q: When is the best time to harvest the lavender flowers?
    A: The best time to pick flowers for sachets or seasoning is in the morning after dew has dried but before the heat draws out the essential oils. For best color, cut the stems when the buds are fully developed and 25%-50% are in bloom.
