French Lavender has an average growth rate of approximately 10 - 20cm per year but most growth is trimmed off each year (in early autumn). Lavandula stoechas is best suited to a height of 60cm or less.
As Lanvandula Stoechas is a more tender variety it needs less pruning. For best results, a light trim after flowering is recommended. Due to the tenderness, make sure you plant Lavender Stoechas in a sheltered sunny position in dry-ish soil (like in France or Spain where it hails from). Please view the best4hedging Care and Planting instructions in our Advice section.
