Lavender Wednesday

Sprouting tray got moldy but a few seeds came up in spite of it
Second pot, the top soil dries out much faster now. Overnight it feels very dry. 2-3 tiny sprouts surviving.

Plus my friend Rosemary sent me a great article about Lavender of all kinds (HERE)

Why do I want to grow lavender? Because the smell is one I can enjoy!

Today's Quote:

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.


  1. or course I love lavender, in a blindfolded fragrance test for men, lavender was picked as a favorite, most called a "fresh" smell.

  2. I bought a small potted lavender this year. I can't wait until it's big enough for me to bring more sprigs into the house.

  3. Exciting! I've never tried to grow it from seed. I just bought two potted lavenders. Lavender rarely survives a winter here in the ground so I decided to do as I do with my rosemary and my bay tress -- haul then in for the winter. It's maybe my favorite smell.


Welcome to my blog. I'd love to hear from you.. I do review (monitor) comments so I read them, but I'd rather share them!
