U-pick Season is upon us!  We will start picking on the English lavenders Tuesday the 22nd. Pick some super-dark purple 'Imperial Gem', 'Martha's White' a white variety that opens to pale pink flowers, and Royal Velvet, another dark purple variety with buds spread out along the stem. Our two year old English lavender plants are still rather small, but covered with flowers. We also have a small area of our older Folgate English lavender ready to start picking this week.

Our long-stemmed hybrid lavandins are covered with long stems and flowers just starting to turn color. They should be glorious this July.  

Our lavandin variety 'Grosso', very fragrant with medium purple color, should be ready to begin picking on 4th of July weekend.  We have two other varieties that will start blooming after 'Grosso', the first is 'Super' with pale lavender color and excellent scent, followed closely by the very beautiful, dark colored 'Gros Bleu'.  The three varieties have significant overlap in their bloom, so peak bloom should be in mid July. 

Our U-pick hours will be:

 Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays: 12 pm to 4 pm  EDT

 Fridays and Saturdays: 10 am to 4 pm EDT

Hope to see you here!


Martha & Bill
