Heaven Scent Nursery purchases

Hi Chris, I just wanted to share the plants I bought at Heaven Scent Nursery with you and our friends. The Lavender Tree (Heteropexys natalensis) has beautiful oblong reddish leaves and will be a beauty when she is grown – about 6m with a tall narrow trunk and it is indigenous. I then bought three Lavender (lavendula intermedia) (I am still mad about lavender!!) to go into my three silver buckets. I’ll take a pic when I’ve planted them. Not quite sure where I’m going to put them. My Artemesia is a Powis Castle and I’m becoming very fond of these plants. They are great insect repellant plants and together with our soapy organic pesticide it keeps the bad nasties away. I also just nip off the tips and put them under infected plants as a mulch and so far so good. I planted mine under the roses – so beware aphids! And the last plant is a rosemary – another great herb – with white flowers.

Happy Gardening! xxx

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Good selection of plants from Barbara. Old fashioned or not, lavender has everything. I am not familiar with Heteropexys natalensis, I will check it out for hardiness.
