Short on space but looking for something spectacular? Munstead lavender will flourish in containers. It blooms twice in the growing season, starting in late spring or early summer—so be ready to harvest! You can also grow Munstead in an herbal garden planting, or as part of a perennial border. Give it a haircut in the spring to encourage bushy growth. And be sure to harvest the flower stalks as they begin to blossom; that will encourage the next round of growth.
