On Friday, my husband surprised me with two galvanized pots of lavender that he bought at Trader Joe's. I loved the size of them and I had the perfect spot for them on my front porch.
The type of lavender is Little Bee. To care for it, it requires plenty of light but away from the bright sunlight. The soil must be kept moist and faded flowers removed. The Little Bee lavender can also be planted without pot in a sunny place in the garden.
For now I will keep in the galvanized pots for the porch and perhaps plant them at a later date.
It is such a beautiful day here in Beaufort, SC. Perfect day for sipping a glass of iced tea and some porch sitting too!
Have you ever been to a lavender farm? I visited a Lavender Farm in Springfield, OR where my sister lives called McKenzie River Lavender. We cut out own lavender in bunches and bought some lavender soap and lavender linen spray that I use on my bed linens! It smells amazing!!!!! You can visit McKenzie River Lavender FB page here.
Have you ever grown lavender in your garden?
