Lavender is one of the best tempered and least demanding of plants, asking only well-drained alkaline soil and plenty of sunshine. Although a native of the Mediterranean region, it is grown throughout the world where soil and climate are favourable. It can be grown successfully in most parts of the British Isles. Cross-breeding in plants produces hybrids. Lavender hybridises readily, so many different varieties occur. Lavender bushes grown from the seed of even one bush only are different from their parent plant and from each other. Nowadays there are many different lavenders to choose from, in all shades from dark blues and purples to pink and even white. The foliage, too, is varied, from silvery and grey-green to plants with bright green leaves. The height of plants ranges from the dwarf to the tall, and some form compact bushes while others spread almost into arabesques. Each variety also has its own slightly different perfume. At Norfolk Lavenderís Caley Mill you can walk round the National Collection of Lavenders and see more than forty varieities.
