The plantsman: Cotton lavender

The Guardian

By Andy Sturgeon

A few years ago, it seemed that almost every gardening article was about Mediterranean plants. This was a reaction to the global warming debate, and the great British weather promptly responded with a series of iffy summers that suggested we had nothing to worry about.
Now, however, with widespread hosepipe bans, the prospect of a drought cannot be ignored, so it makes sense to think about plants that are happy in hot, dry soils.
