Care Size & Guidance

Like most lavenders, this requires little attention beyond watering in the warmer months when the plants are still establishing. Though they have a naturally neat habit, you can clip them annually as the summer flowers fade if further shaping is desired.

‘Munstead’ is a more compact cultivar than some, reaching around 45cm across in the right conditions. In heavier soils or colder regions it may be worth planting lavender on a slight mound and/or backfilling the planting hole with horticultural grit to improve drainage.
