Masses of dense spikes of fragrant, bluish-purple flowers all summer, held above greyish-green, slender, aromatic, evergreen foliage which fills the air with fragrance when brushed against. Flowers are highly attractive to bees and other nectar seeking insects. Plant in a sunny position, in well drained soil. The dried leaves and flowers of Lavenders are useful in pot-pourri. The flower heads should be cut before they are fully open. This was named after Gertrude Jekyll's famous listed garden, Munsted Wood in Surrey.

Pruning

Hedging - As a general rule, plants grown for hedging need pruning to encourage side branching. Usually the harder a plant is pruned the bushier it will be. If they are not pruned there is a danger that the hedges will be thin and bare at the base and that the tips of the plants will die back. If the plant is naturally bushy, less or sometimes no pruning will be needed to achieve a dense hedge.

Lavender, Munstead: Cut back by about one third the leading and long side shoots and repeat during the second winter.
