Lavender Plants for 2022
Due to Barb's accident in December and inability to access the greenhouse for 4 months, many of her lavender cuttings were lost, so some hoped for varieties were lost or in short supply. She was able to replace some with new varieties from lavender growers in the South and Northwest.
