Here we are in July already. The lavender is looking amazing at the front of the house. We have the annual decision- do we leave it for guests to enjoy, or cut it and dry it so that we can all have the memory of it in pot pourri throughout the year.
Half and half is probably best. Last year I left it too long, and all the lavender got soaked one night and became useless for drying. There are photos and information about White Moss Lavender here.
I know, in the scale of world events , worrying about whether to cut the lavender or not is not a major decision along the lines of "will Greece leave the Euro and send our economy crashing". It's a nice little problem.Just thought I'd share it.
By the way, if you want to book for September and October, now's the time, as bookings are coming in thick and fast. You can email me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
