I bought a big lavender from Ikea. It cost about 10 euros which I think is rather cheap. The lavenders hate wet and cold and it seems this spring is not the best for them, that's why I didn't want to pay serious money for a plant. I had no idea Ikea had lavender so it was a pleasant surprise for me to find a big one for rather a little money (it was a less pleasant surprise for my husband as he had to carry the lavender and one boxwood plant first to the car, then to home to the balcony then back to the car and then to Vårkulla's back yard. The pots were rather heavy...).
