How to Grow Lavender

How to Grow Lavender
A big favorite at our house, lavender is one herb that does it all:
  • It's a beauty in the garden with gray foliage and flowers that can range from deep purple to white. 
  •  
  • It's aromatic in a way that can smell as wonderful on a young girl as it does on an octogenarian. (Actually, it has a clean fragrance that smells pleasant without being flowery.) 
  •  
  • It's a natural antibacterial and antifungal, which makes it an effective ingredient in cleansers, cosmetics and hair treatments. 
  •  
  • You can also use it in cooking.

Pretty impressive for a perennial that requires very little care and has a history interesting enough to make it a conversation piece as well as a focal point in your garden.

Here's a recap of some of the lavender posts I've shared in the past. As you're laying out your spring herb garden, they're worth a second look:
