Do you keep your dentatas frostfree during the winter janey? I lost quite a few of mine when temps fell below -5C but they selfseeded so freely that i was never without any.
They had the strongest fragrance of all my lavenders and certainly the longest flowering, from may till the frosts arriv e. I like the idea of growing thm as standard, could you poss post a photo of one in flower if you have one? Thank you.

Yes I'm quite excited to see how things will be in a couple of months time, especially as I've forgotten what half the lilies are....lol!

Resi ~ yes, I did this last winter, the original larger Dentatas died over the previous winter I'm afraid. They do have a really strong spicy scent don't they...I'll have a look in my pics, I'm sure there must be one.

I started these last year for Ian Amy, they're still only small though, he really did have a magic touch with Lavenders and Dahlias...:))

I googled 'janey and dentata' on this site and found the ref to one of your photos from 28th sept 2010, " French Lavender dentata and Laurus nobilis". Worrying what google can do really...

Crikey Resi, so much easier than ploughing through all the pics! Yes you need to be careful just what you're disclosing don't you, thats the downside...:((

Yep specially as i found out that google gets into our private messages too!

17 May, 2014

 

Really? How did you find that out?

A couple o months ago i googled something like i did your lavender search and landed on GOY,but realized i was reading somebodies private message to another goy member, it's that easy! gave me the creeps, yes big brother was in there too!
