                                                                Lavender Plants for 2023

We will have plants n these varieties this year though some are more limited in numbers than others.  I lost many of my late summer cuttings during the time Don was in the ICU and rehab when  my greenhouse time was so limited. I have continued to take cuttingssince then. There will be 1 yr.old plants available in some varieties as well.

Like many of you, I wonder what lavenders made it though that brutal cold snap in December?  Often lavender that's less than 1 yr old are the most likely to not make it. I usually cover those with frost blankets the first year in bitter cold but did not get that done this year so we'll see in a month or so when they start to green up. Right now most of my lavenders look pretty bad but sometimes they will come back from the roots so give yours some time if that happens.
