Frequently Asked Questions

Should I water my lavender plant every day?  

In the high desert of Nevada, watering is more frequent, but still not a lot. In some regions, I know lavender farm owners who do not irrigate at all.  --You need to remember that lavender is drought tolerant. Too much water will give the plant root rot and kill it. The early stages of the plant’s life require a little more water than an established lavender plant, but not every day!

How long will my lavender that I have purchased keep its scent?

If you have purchased dried lavender from our farm it can last a few years! By giving the lavender buds a delicate squeeze you are refreshing the scent that you will be able to enjoy all over again. Please handle the lavender with care, when lavender is dried it can become brittle.

Do you sell culinary lavender?

YES!! Culinary lavender is available for purchase on the farm, visit our shop! We love cooking with lavender, and we think it should be available to everyone!

Where does lavender grow best?

Lavender loves and thrives in full sun with well-drained sandy soil. 

When does your farm have fresh lavender?

Lavender typically blooms from Late June to early September on our farm, so the fresh harvested lavender will be available for local customers only from July to the end of August. We are working hard to be able to ship fresh lavender overnight, so please stay tuned.
