It’s Bloomn’ Time

It’s About Bloomn’ Time…..

at Heritage Lavender


You’re invited to visit our little patch of purple on 
July 1 & 2 10am – 4pm 

With the peak performance of color in our field of nearly 600 plants, we will soon start harvesting. Before we begin, 
celebrate “Bloomn’ Time” with us and enjoy nature’s gifts of beauty and aroma as the summer breezes carry fragrances across our small market garden.

 You are welcome to visit our flower and herb gardens and enjoy our many varieties of lavender, remember your camera!

Greenhouse plants and specialty containers will be on clearance and our products will be available for purchase.

Bee’s are abuzz telling us it’s time to harvest.

 Did you know last week was National Pollinator Week?

Happy Earth Day!

Today is Earth Day, a fantastic and wonderful holiday that goes hand-in-hand with springtime. Here at Heritage Lavender we have some saplings that we received for donating to the Arbor Day Foundation. Did you know that one tree generates enough oxygen for two people? We’re very excited to find new homes for our twelve new trees!

Saplings from Arbor Day and Rubatos from Friend

We have also freshly broken the ground for our second patch of lavender. This, coupled with the Greenhouse that we have laid the foundation for, will make for quite the busy summer. Our number of lavender plants will roughly double with this new patch. We have seeded some grass between the two fields for a nice place to enjoy some lavender tea and fragrances right off the plant.
Soil Prepped for New Plot

Our existing lavender has started to wake up out of its winter dormancy, with new growth already coming in. Soon our lavender fields will have a nice blueish-purple hue to them as the lavender begins to flower. We can accommodate any visitors if you would like to see them in bloom!

Our strawberries in our kitchen garden are also beginning to bloom, along with our perennial herbs.Strawberries in Bloom
