Lavandula angustifolia 'Alba' (white lavender) is a small shrub with fragrant white flowers and grey leaves. Lavender likes to be in full sun and will produce many flowers in a sunny place. Lavandula angustifolia 'Alba' tolerates drought. The pruned flower spikes that you have left after the second pruning can be left to dry inside and still smell delicious.
The plant remains low and nice and compact. The advice is to use potting soil when planting. Prune the lavender 2 times a year. The first time in March, pruning to just above the wood. The second time only cut away the flowers so that the plant can survive the winter. In this way, it remains a beautiful, compact plant.
In winter, stagnant moisture in the soil is bad for the plant. In harsh winters, the lavender can freeze, but that's not a problem. After a pruning in the spring, it just walks out again. A little lime in the soil is optimal for lavender.
