Lavender is a beautiful and fragrant low maintenance option to have around your house and vegetable garden. It is adorned with beautiful flowers over the summer months that you can smell in the air as you pass them. Lavender can be grown in garden beds, pots or used as a beautiful hedge around your vegetable plots. It thrives on well-drained soil and full sun and loves to be planted in some organic mulch. Prune your lavender hard once to twice a year to encourage new foliage and flowers.

Here are the reasons why we think Lavenders should be planted around your vegetable garden this summer:

Bees Love Lavender - Lavender attracts the bees which are pollinators which means that they will fertilise flowers so the plant can develop fruit.

Companion planting is about putting the right plants together to repel insects and prevent disease. Lavender is a fantastic companion plant for your vegetable garden, it will make your Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli and Celery thrive. You can flip around as well, if you plant Basil, Mint, Rosemary and Thyme around your Lavender this will help make your Lavender thrive. Companion planting is such a great natural disease repeller. 

Lavender is beautiful and makes you happy! Having Lavender around your vegetable garden will entice you to use it more as your pick from your crops. We love how it looks like a border or walkway plant and it just cheers up your edible garden space. You cant say you don’t smile when you see and smell Lavender
