Sweet spring welcome
Follow the path through this calm garden setting and you’ll enjoy some of spring’s finest flowers. Planting in masses creates a striking impact with more blooms all at once. Lavender makes a great companion to roses, especially in cutting gardens or where you want to add extra fragrance. Just be sure to provide sharp drainage and not overwater — lavender doesn’t tolerate that.
