Bob and Trudy Perry, married for over 30 years, common interests include dirt, water, and sunshine. They both have a deep agricultural heritage, growing and selling lavender locally is their passion. Trudy’s motivation to grow lavender is to share her enchantment with this versatile herb and its calming effects. Today’s society is over-stressed and lavender offers relief both through aromatherapy and as an herbal ingredient. Bob enjoys harvesting and distilling for the essential oil and hydrosol.

Our “Certified Naturally Grown” certification shows our commitment to care for our earth responsibly and sustainably. We grow everything using organic practices without the use of synthetic chemical herbicides or pesticides.  Heritage Lavender is happy to be registered Colorado Proud and US Lavender Grower’s Association members.

  1. May each little lavender plant you sowed in fertile soil, grow to abundance and fill the air with pleasant fragrance. Wishing you success in this new venture, and strength to endure! DMS

  2. My daughter (who Lives in Denver) and I (I live in Loveland) are wondering if it is best to plant new lavender plants in the fall, October, or in the Spring. She wants to plant them down her walkway, shrub lavender about 12″ to 18″ tall on the South side of the house. I want to plant lavender, 12′ to 18″ shrubs and some taller, 24″ to 36″ on the North side with only very late afternoon sun at best. Any recommendations? Thanks Pat and Richelle

    1. Hello Pattie & Richelle ~ thank you for the message. I have found it is best,here along the Front Range, to plant in the spring. October is too late for good root establishment before the cooler temps and you need a good 12-14 weeks in the ground before the first frost date.
      All lavender varieties need full sun and it preforms best in at least 6-8 hours of full sun. Anything under that results in small plants with minimal growth and flower stems.
      The Lavandula angustifolia or “English” lavender are the best choices for the front range and most are cold hardy to -15. Our best performers have been Beuna Vista, Sachet and Croxton’s Wild.
      The Lavandula x. intermedia, Lavandin or “French” lavender are tender & less tolerant of our abrupt temperature changes. A few of the long stemmed x.intermedia varieties that have fared well through the winter for me are, Edelweiss (a white lavender) & Gros Blue
      Lavender likes well draining soil, so usually our heavy Colorado clay needs to be amended with 5% organic matter and gravel or wood chip as larger particles to help soil oxygenation. It is not recommended to add sand as sand + clay = cement. Your local CSU extension office or a search for CSU extension fact sheets online can be a great resource for soil prep and or soil testing prior to planting. At the time you are considering your soil quality also take note of the amount of full sun hours in the planting areas you mentioned above. If you are searching for specific varieties to plant next spring, please consider contacting me as I am working toward offering some plant starts from my best performers for purchase in the spring. You can also check with Gulley’s Greenhouse in Ft. Collins, they usually have nice healthy choices available. I hope this information is helpful, if you have any other questions please feel free to email me (Trudy) at heritagelavender@gmail.com.
      Happy gardening!
      Trudy
