French lavender is a glorious cottage garden plant, with a spicy fragrance, different to the usual Lavender. The evergreen plants also look highly ornamental, yet are easy to grow. The nectar-rich flowers of Lavender 'Fathead' are particularly attractive to bees. French lavender is best planted into sheltered borders, containers or path edges where the perfume can be appreciated as you brush past the plants.
