Hey Ground Breaker!

How is your garden growing? I'm sorry I have been away for awhile. Yields of lavender-depends on the type. For some it takes only a year to get very bushy and productive-for others 2-3. This is the third year for my main lavender area and we have a good start to the harvest, but I wish I had kept better records for the last two-so I could give more accurate accounts of the amounts. The Angustifolia ( English) varieties have a smaller yield because they are smaller plants, and their oil is used for medicinal and aromatherapy applications. The larger intermedias are used more for soaps and they have a higher yield. I have made a very pleasant mix of some of the sweeter smelling varieties and the resulting oil is pretty amazing in goats milks soap or balm. They all seem to be more productive with a dry, alkaline almost rocky or sandy soil.
