Can’t have a garden without lavender! Late season special from greenhouse.

Originally bought in 2007, transplanted to a new house in 2008. I absolutely adore this lavender, it’s kind of like a pet now.

    I love this dwarf Lavender variety. One of the best fragrances of all the Lavenders I think.

    And isn’t it a joy to weed around, or walk around, or rub your hand across? The scent is amazing. I grew 17 lavender plants from seed several years ago. I think 12 remain in my garden and are going great in a corner area. One of these years I’ll figure out to dry them correctly. Last year was a bust.

    I definitely agree with you two! I have another lavender in the garden bed of doom (so named because the previous owners of the house didn’t take care of it for years and I’m in the process of completely redoing it) and digging up all those weeds and heavily compacted bulbs wasn’t quite so bad while I was up against the lavender and had that lovely scent to accompany me!
