Lavender English - Plant

6720- English Lavender. Lavandula angustifolia

Perennial (hardy in zones 5-8)

This standard clump forming variety is adored for its delightfully sweet scented and high yielding essential oil production. The aromatic oils have a relaxing effect and is typically used medicinally to combat stress. Try adding the flowers as a splash of colour to a salad, or use in a Herbes de Provence blend to spice meat! Remember, a little goes a long way. Harvest just before the buds open, to optimize oil retention, and hang stems upside down in bunches in a warm dry spot for a few weeks. Commonly grown in rock gardens or as a border plant. Pollinator friendly & deer resistant! Like any other variety, English Lavender must be located in full sun and planted in well drained alkaline sandy soil, ideally in a raised bed or rock garden as it is prone to root rot if conditions are too wet. Bloom time June-July and lasts 3-4 weeks. Height 2-3 feet.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
