We love animals, yours and ours. However we
do not allow outside animals to be at the farm. We are an organic farm, and all animals leave a scent and must relieve themselves.
That encourages other animals to mark a territory on top of the previous animal... then we have a problem. We cannot
control what goes into our plants and into our products. we are very strict about this, and we apologize if this offends
anyone, but these are the rules and we must adhere to them. If you want to bring your animal, we do have an area where you
can park your car under the trees and keep them cool, but they must stay in the car. Thank you and we do hope you understand
|Pruning Your Lavender Plants
the Zen nursery on the lavender farm for a nice selection of lavender plants for sale.
Summer is almost here. The plants are awake and growing. Don't forget that lavender is
drought tolerant but still needs water to survive. Give them plenty of water to wake from their winter slumber and help them
to grow. Then you may cut back on water when they are showing signs of good growth.
If you are planning a lavender garden, then we usually suggest planting early bloomers, mid-bloomers,
and late bloomers. This will extend the lavender fragrant scent and beauty of lavender in your garden
through-out the growing season.
Don't forget fall is lavender-pruning time. So remember that it is essential to the well
being of your lavender to give it a nice pruning in the fall. I always like to prune ours back in the fall as it seems
to give them a head start in the spring, and makes them extra hardy through the winter. Click here to get information on how to prune your lavender. Watch a video here on pruning your lavender in 30 seconds or less. It is essential to the well-being of your lavender to prune it back every
