Lavender Farming

One of our biggest experiments this year has been trying to grow lavender on a large scale.  Although there are a couple small lavender farms in NC and there are a few more in Virginia, not many attempts have been made to cultivate this plant in the mountains of western NC.  We have done heaps to amend the soil for this dry hot weather loving perennial and hope it pays off this year with our 133 new lavender Grosso plants.
