We just completed our summer 2022 lavender harvest and are pleased to offer you dried English lavender bouquets (Lavandula angustifolia) right from the farm! Our lavender is lovingly grown and harvested on our farm without the use of chemicals or pesticides. Our earliest bloomer is our stunning "Folgate" variety. This compact variety is often chosen for essential oil distillation, and it is also popular with chefs as it is an excellent culinary variety. It is a deep purple lavender in color, sweetly fragrant. and quite versatile. Besides being an excellent culinary lavender, it is also perfect for display, sachets, and so much more.
Folgate lavender is a smaller variety of lavender- your bouquet will be 10" to 12" tall, and will contain approximately 125-150 stems. These are also second year flowers, so some of their stems are quite delicate. To best preserve it's color, buds and fragrance, it would be best to keep it out of direct sunlight if using it for display. If you plan to de-bud your lavender to use for culinary, craft or other purposes, we recommend keeping the loose buds in an airtight container away from sunlight to best preserve the essential oil, fragrance and color.
