Our yard has a number of established lavender plants, in addition to the new ones we have planted. The larger plants are all in bloom now, and I harvested some of the flowers yesterday. Our house smells so nice now!
I cut some flower heads only for drying on a screen, as well as some small bundles to hang. This is the first time I have harvested lavender, so I’m interested to see which method is more effective. I left tons of flowers still budding on the plants, so we will likely have another round of cuttings later this spring. Yay!
