In 2014 we started our lavender farm with 250 plants after years of off and on dreaming. Instantly we fell in love with this plant! Seeing it go through each season, i
t truly is beautiful. We decided to start out cautiously as we’re at the northern fringe of the growing season. Winter approached and we carefully covered the plants and waited it out to see how they’d survive.
Spring 2015 – After a long winter with lots of snow, the bare patches appeared. One word of caution – don’t judge your lavender by first glances in the spring! Lavender takes a while to come to life. Lavandula angustifolia loves the dry heat (can you say Mediterranean?) and will need some sunshine and warmth to get going. Before we knew how it would survive the winter, we had to decide whether or not to order new plants in 2015. During the winter we ‘bit the bullet’ and ordered another 750 plants – 4 different varieties.
Fast forward– We lost about 10% or our plants the first winter which we considered to be acceptable and currently we have about 1000 plants. Peggy stays busy making lavender flax seed pillows and other lavender products, getting the culinary lavender ready to sell, and getting ready for the end of year craft shows.
We’d love to communicate with you about your experiences with lavender. Please like us on Facebook (we tend to post current happenings on the farm there) and leave a note there or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).We’d also like to know how you like our products or if there’s any lavender product you’d like to see us carry.
