LAVENDER PLANTS

Harvesting Grosso Lavender at the old farm in Hayden. This is about 10 plants planted 4' apart

Lavender is easy to grow and is wonderful for attracting bees and butterflies to your garden. It likes full sun and is quite drought resistant once established.  Drainage is a must, but they enjoy a good deep watering once a week in mid summer. Lavender loves to be cut, with many uses for the cut stems. After bloom, round down the plants, shaping into compact balls. By cutting down fairly hard, you prevent long woody stems that will break over winter from snow.  Best of all, lavender is shunned by deer!  We offer plants in one and two gallon sizes, ready to go in your garden.

Grosso is a large lavender plant that can grow 3' x 3' in bloom. The flower stems are long and the blooms are dark purple and very fragrant.  This is the one to use for craft work, sachets, bouquets and lavender wands.  

GROSSO LAVENDER 

Munstead plants grow about 18"x 18" and have a cool purple flower with a milder fragrance than Grosso.  This one is good for sachets and also used for culinary purposes such as lavender lemonade. A plant in the herb garden or large pot makes a nice addition.
