A sea of purple - just lovely, and I can smell them. I tried lavender here, but I think it just got too hot for them, and yes, they were a bit of work.

Anne you should definitely try again - lavender is a mediterranean herb and thrives in a hot, dusty environment. The one thing it doesn't like is care and attention!!! So don't give it an enriched soil, don't feed it and don't overwater it - it will reward you if you neglect it Smile.

Thanks Lillian, Hugh, Mike, Helen and Barbara.

Barbara: yes, definitely, the scent was absolutely heavenly (quite an appropriate description, now I come to think of it, for the gardens of an abbey Wink)
