So many uses. Since I use no chemicals in the garden it is also safe for food use.
I love the fragrance, and just the thought that this beautiful harvest grew with no care or assistance is amazing. Just pick the sunniest exposure and stand back. All I really did was weed around the plants much later this spring than most years.( I have only two plants and one died back to a quarter of it's size last year.)
I sat and gathered the stems into two bunches. A long stemmed bunch and the shorter ones.
I always try to imagine what it would be like to really harvest in a field of lavender. Heaven, I bet.
I save all the little bits for sachets and potpourri.
June is swiftly fading into July. Get out there and enjoy every moment!
