Lavender is part of the mint family and a very popular and versatile garden plant. There are 47 known species of Lavender. Its native grounds spread from Cape Verde and the Canary Islands, Europe across to northern and eastern Africa, the Mediterranean, southwest Asia, China to southeast India.

If you have an established perennial garden that is more than two or three years old, chances are you have some plants out there that are looking tired and need attention. The window of activity is small as most perennials are best to be divided in early spring.
