The Lavender Garden

The Lavender Garden

Lavender is a mysteriously elusive plant that encompasses many different facets of enjoyment. Botanists talk of color and leaf shape and ignore fragrance. Perfumists sniff the air for the sweetest smell. Landscapers push for the toughest or the smallest or the largest. And, gardeners want them all.

The Lavender Garden sorts through some of the most asked questions and guides us on choosing the right lavender, planting the lavender, pruning the lavenders, and using the lavenders. This book is Lavender 101 which provides a great starting point for those just discovering lavender.

Particularly useful are the tips garnered from folks who work with the plants. The craft and recipe section is  enjoyable and answers those pesky questions, like when to cut and how to dry and what is a lavender wand. 

There are few points we couldn't embrace, like putting sand or gravel in the soil and using chemical fertilizer. But, overall the information is helpful in choosing the right plants for the right place and use.
