Lavender still holds the farm stage, front & center~ with varieties that grow best in Victoria's climate and most of all: smell heavenly! Traditional Lavandula angustifolia varieties smell the best...remembering for the Chef: Scent equals Taste! Other varieties are chosen for looks and performance. Most Lavenders begin to bloom in July, the exception is the range of Spanish or "Butterfly" bloom Lavenders that start in April through October. They make great patio Lavenders, keep dead headed for continuous blooms.
2015 is going to be the year of classic Sweet Lavenders: Hidcote purple, Munstead blue~ even a variety we call "Happy Valley" grown from our own eclectic seeds. Small pots are $4 each/ gallons which are 2 year olds are $10. A timely reminder: do plant all Lavenders in full sun with good drainage to handle our West Coast winter-wet as Lavenders will get root rot if they sit in soggy soils any length of time. See our Lavender propagation list 2015
Our Herb plant selections always include a traditional range of Cooking herbs for the professional Chef or at home; herbs for Teas, herbs for simple Medicinal recipes or home cosmetics not forgetting a selection of herbs for Bees & Butterflies!
