English Lavender hedge (Lavandula angustifolia) description

Old English Lavender is a bushy shrub, ideal for creating a low, vibrant garden hedge. The flowers of Lavandula angustifolia appear in summer and are incredibly popular with bees and butterflies. The evergreen foliage provides year-round interest and perfectly complements the masses of colourful flowers. Our normal variety of Lavandula angustifolia is the very famous and well regarded Lavender Munstead but occasionally we substitute other very similar varieties – if you definitely require Lavandula angustifolia Munstead please speak to us to check the current batch.

Most common uses for English Lavender hedge plants

Use Lavender hedging to border pathways or plant above low walls. Lavender is wonderful for rockery gardens, creating height and texture and adding a touch of wildlife-friendly colour. Lavandula angustifolia fits perfectly into a formal garden setting, and works equally as well when used with a more relaxed garden style.

Combine Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead' hedges with

We recommend growing Old English Lavender alone to create a dense, effective feature, with attractive seasonal interest. Grown alone, English Lavender hedge plants have the ability to create a cottage garden theme, with a slightly Mediterranean feel.

Growth rate of English Lavender hedging

Lavandula angustifolia hedges have an average growth rate, achieving about 20 - 40cm per year. English Lavender hedge plants are best suited for compact edging and will reach an approximate height of 60cm.

Care advice for English Lavender hedge plants

English Lavender hedge plants prefer a well-drained position with full sun; they are tolerant of drought so it is important to ensure that you do not overwater your Lavender hedging. Old English Lavender is a low maintenance shrub that requires little attention; however, you should prune your hedges after flowering, in late August - September. Lavender angustifolia can handle hard pruning, so we recommend cutting back approximately one-third of the plant foliage. This will help frothy new foliage to develop before the winter frosts and encourage maximum flowering on your Lavender hedging from the first summer onwards. Should you wish to slightly delay flowering time, you can also lightly prune your English Lavender hedge plants in April. For any further guidance on how to care for or prune your hedge, please visit the best4hedging advice section.

For information on planting density specific to your Lavandula angustifolia hedge, please see the product table. In the 'No. Per Metre' column, you will find our recommended plant density for each individual plant species and root type. Or you can find more general information about planting density here.

  • Orders £85 & over (ex. VAT) to mainland UK are delivered FREE* (Exceptions apply - see below for Scottish Highlands etc)
  • Orders under £85 (ex. VAT) to mainland UK £9.95
  • At an additional cost, we can deliver to Scottish Highlands & Islands, which we classify as including AB (Aberdeen) and DD (Dundee) postcodes, as well as Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Wight and Isle Man. The exact delivery cost is order specific and will need to be quoted by one of our team, so please contact us on 01257 261 243

*For some plants that are too heavy or too tall to be packed in cardboard boxes we use pallet deliveries. In these circumstances, we require a minimum order value of £200 (ex VAT) for free delivery, or you can make a contribution towards the delivery cost. Look out for the information on product pages which explains this further where applicable and if your order is for less than £200 (ex VAT) please call or email us to agree upon a delivery contribution. This requirement only applies to those plants where it is clearly indicated on the product page

Pallet deliveries are always undertaken on an 18-tonne vehicle (similar in size to a standard refuse vehicle). If for any reason you require a smaller vehicle please contact our sales team who can arrange this for you. There will be an additional surcharge applied for small vehicle deliveries

Delivery Timescales

99% of our orders are dispatched within 3 to 7 working days of receipt and most the day after the order is placed. We can do “next day delivery” on many of our products for an additional £12 (incl VAT) but please call on 01257 494 491 before placing your order to check.

We can also deliver on a specified date to suit you. Please indicate the date you would like to receive delivery in the notes section of the checkout (or place your order by phone) and we’ll do our utmost to meet that date.

Occasional hiccups can occur (such as broken down vehicles) and although we are very experienced in logistics we cannot be held liable for costs incurred or inconvenience due to late deliveries - see terms and conditions for more information.

You will receive an email or telephone call confirming the dispatch of your order 24/48 hours before it arrives with you.

Exceptions to our quick turnaround timescale

Pre-orders - if you have placed an order that includes products on pre-order, then they will be dispatched to you as soon as they are available. If your order includes pre-order bare roots or root balls you will be notified once they are being dispatched (root balls from mid to late October and bare roots from early to mid-November).

Root balls - lifting root balls involves the use of complex, heavy machinery, this lifting is carried out twice a week in the root ball season so we do still have a prompt turnaround timescale but if your order has just missed one lifting, it will be a few days before we lift again. We are always happy to confirm when we can deliver to you before you order. The benefit of this method of supplying root balls is that they are always fresh and therefore have a higher success rate than root balls that are stored out of the soil.

Weather conditions can affect dispatch - bare root and root ball plants are not lifted if the ground is too cold (it damages the roots) and the delivery of all plants can be affected if the water supply is frozen (because we water all plants before packing). Extremely hot weather can also be challenging and occasionally we hold backorders for species that are particularly vulnerable. We ask our customers to be mindful of bank holidays when couriers are not active.

We'd like to stress that although there are exceptions, the vast majority of our orders are dispatched extremely quickly and we are proud of our logistics developed over many years of delivering plants to tens of thousands of customers.


We inspect plants carefully before dispatch but accept that very occasionally things may go wrong. 
You can return your plants (within 14 days) for a refund or replacement (we’ll help with the process of returning). If your plants arrived damaged then returns are free of charge. However, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. If you’d like to return your plants because of a change of plan or if we do not agree that the plants are significantly damaged (the loss of a few leaves in transit or a loose pot on arrival, for example, wouldn't be harmful to the plants), then we may ask you to pay the full or partial return costs if you still wanted to return them. We’re very reasonable and always aim for complete satisfaction as demonstrated by our amazing Feefo customer reviews which can be viewed here.

Should you wish to return any products that you have over-bought, no longer require or purchased in error you will incur both a return cost (different charges for pallets and Boxes) and the original cost of delivery incurred by Best4hedging. Please contact the Service team for charges and/or to organise a return. Plants will be subject to a quality control check from our Nursery upon return before any refund is authorised and processed.

Please note that in the case of damaged plants, if you have not notified us of a problem within 14 days of delivery, we consider you to have accepted the plants and Best4Hedging has no further liability for them should they fail.
