Fields of Lavender!

Thursday, July 12, 2018

I’ve always wanted to grow lavender but I know it’s happiest in hot, dry, sandy soil - none of which we have in East Hampton. Recently, I came across a variety called Phenomenal, which does so much better in wetter climates. I was thrilled when it came back this year (with a few replacements!) and I now have a whole crop of the most gorgeous purple flowers. You can cut long stems, wrap them with string or raffia, and hang them upside down to dry in your closet or bedroom. The scent will transport you to Provence - but without the jetlag!
