Close your eyes and you picture a sea of Lavender with a gentle floral fragrance wafting. If you have a patch of sun, you can grow this n your garden, decorate a tub or fill a nearby meadow. Sweeten cakes, custards or sorbet with tiny Lavender blossoms. Sow the seed in a pot, rather than direct in the garden, then be patient. The rewards are great, knowing that you can do it!
Plant Information
Imagine how happy your garden will look when it's growing with fresh Lavender! Treasured all over the world for its fine fragrance and cheerful appearance, it's also loved for its medicinal and therapeutic qualities. Its oil can be used to soothe skin irritations and burns. And its light and lovely scent is said to help with relaxation, so it's a common ingredient in potpourri and sachets as well as bath and body products and perfume. It can also be used as a flavoring for treats like sorbets and smoothies. A Mediterranean native, Lavender plants can grow as tall as three feet, are simple to sow, and bloom for a long time. It's attractive to bees, birds, and butterflies, but a not so much to deer and rabbits, so it beautifies your garden while protecting it too!
