It's All About Lavender....

This weeks post is a garden one...
because it's chaotic here at Mia Bella Passions homestead at the moment!
It's school holidays - so we have the added addition of little Miss Three and Master almost Seven!
PLUS three builders installing new double glazing in the living end of the house.
Add to the mix three very stressed out cats!
Because of all those happenings, I just didn't get my planned DIY completed...

So this weeks post is about a new plant.

A lavender.

It's called 'Lavender Avonview'.
Purchased to replace the Dutch Iris bulbs that have finished their Spring flowering in the office deck pot.
(Time to plant them out in the garden bed for next years flowering).
So in their place is now a Lavender'.

'Lavender Avonview'
or Lavandula stoechas 'Avonview' 
is a smaller growing lavender.
Perfect for the container...
and also garden beds and rockeries.
It is said to be a wonderful low hedge.
I've added a few purple petunias annuals to the pot too.
They will add to the 'pretty' when they flower and drape over the sides.

Compact but vigorous, this lavender thrives in sunny positions with well-drained soil.
Plus it tolerates coastal conditions and short periods of dryness once it is established.
Trimming after flowering helps maintain shape and more flowers!

I'm loving the shape, form and perfume of this lavender.
Its height is just 80cm by 80cm so it's perfect for my office deck pot.
The bonus is the bees LOVE it too!
