Lavandula angustifolia

Common lavender. Decorative evergreen plant for a sunny, sheltered position on a patio or in a flowerbed. Plants in pots need fertilizer regularly. This lavender is lime-loving and prefers dry or normal soil. The foliage is a nicely grey-green and wonderfully fragrant when touched. The many spikes flower for long periods and after flowering, they can be used in dry bouquets or homemade potpourri. The flowers attract many butterflies and bees. Destined for decoration, not for consumption.

Dahlia LaBella Piccolo series

The Dahlia has been a well-known plant for a very long time. Nevertheless, did you know that there are all sorts of new developments surrounding the Dahlia these days? Take for example the Dahlia LaBella Piccolo series.
This series stands out because of (as the name indicates) its small decorative flowers that give the plant a distinctly playful look. The plant remains compact and therefore, Dahlia LaBella Piccolo is an ideal choice for the garden or the patio. The plant does not require any support because it only grows up to 15-20 cm in height. When looked after properly, Dahlia Piccolo can continue to flower until September. By now, there are many colours available and the series is regularly increased by new surprising colours. Plants of the Dahlia LaBella Piccolo series are available from April onwards in various garden centres. Be careful in case of night frosts and make sure to adequately protect the plants.

 

Dahlia LaBella Piccolo prefers a sunny position in the garden or on the patio but it does not mind a little shade either. However, it does prefer a sheltered position. Water regularly and ensure good drainage for Dahlias in pots.
Dahlia prefers a nutrient-rich soil. Plants in pots should be given some fertilizer on a regular basis.

Do not put Dahlia LaBella Piccolo outside until there is no more danger of night frosts. Plant a few Piccolos together for a cheerful display!
Piccolos are fun plants that also look very good on the patio in beautiful trendy pots. Deadheading is not required but will result in more profuse flowering.
