Calming lavender is the lavandula angustifolia. The ‘English lavender’. Here in Spain it does not seem to be very well known. That’s a pity because the calming quality of Angustifolia lavender is phenomenal.
This year I had my second lavender harvest and of course I look around a lot in lavender country. This is how I came up with my top 3 lavender varieties that are most suitable for a lavender bouquet. Which bouquet of lavender should you buy? They are for sale in my shop alongside lavender that is more suitable for bagging.
When do you harvest lavender? That depends on what you’re going to do with it.
The first lavender harvest could never be great. The test field I started with this spring contains only 40 plants. Moreover, the harvest in the first year is simply not high. But still, the first results can be there.
