Lavender is an herb garden favourite grown for its calming scent, gray-green foliage and spikes of blue-violet flowers. They are so versatile and can work in a variety of applications, from formal English gardens, cottage gardens, vegetables and herb plantings and rock gardens. While many gardeners use lavender as a border plant, it can be grown successfully in containers too. Once they are established, they are low maintenance and drought-tolerant. Lavender are pollinator magnets – attracting bees and butterflies and they are deer- and rabbit-resistant too.
Lavender can be used in a plethora of ways from food to medicinal purposes to soaps and so many more crafting projects. To preserve and dry lavender, cut stems and hang small bunches upside down in a dark, dry area until the moisture has evaporated.
