A reminder of summer

Posted in Our Portfolio on 16 December 2015 Lavandula x intermedia Olympia (left) and Lavandula angustifolia Blue Ice at Downderry Nursery, July 2015

Whilst sorting through our photo library, we found this beautiful reminder of summer – Lavandula x intermedia Olympia (left) with Lavandula angustifolia Blue Ice. This photo was taken at Downderry Nursery in July this year. Olympia is one of the earliest intermedia varieties to flower, whilst Blue Ice is one of the last angustifolia types – so they make splendid bed-fellows, particularly with the striking contrast in flower colour. What you can’t tell from this photo is the super scent coming from the foliage and the gentle hum of bees working – lavenders are amongst the best plants for pollinators.

Both of these lavenders are in the PFE portfolio – contact us today for details of young plant suppliers for these varieties.
