Each year, on Washington Lavender Farm, we continue to add new lavender plants and products in our venture with this marvelous herb. Washington Lavender has become an exciting addition to the Sequim Valley lavender farms, an area known as “America’s Provence” which is found near the gateway to the Olympic National Park. Not only is it a Bed and Breakfast but it is also a working lavender farm, conveniently located halfway between Sequim and Port Angeles. Our farm store is open from May through September.
As the most versatile herb, adding some lavender to your garden should be a fun and rewarding adventure too! There are many informative books about lavender available in the marketplace, and we strongly recommend that you spend some time learning all about this beautiful and versatile plant. With more than 400 varieties for some amazing culinary, fragrance and essential oil applications, the inn uses it in so many ways. Is there any wonder that lavender has been named the “swiss army knife” of herbs?
A helpful article entitled “How to Grow Beautiful Lavender”, compiled by the farmers who belong to the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association, will provide the homeowner with some helpful guidelines for growing healthy, long lasting lavenders. Here’s a copy of it: GROWING BEAUTIFUL LAVENDER.
Come and enjoy the beauty of our oceanfront lavender farm which is a popular summer destination on the bluff between Sequim and Port Angeles.
“Having fallen in love with the lavender fields of France, I was pleasantly surprised when traveling recently through Sequim, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula… There seemed to me an almost mystical connection between those fields where the Olympic Mountains roll down to the ocean and the foothills of the southern Alps as they slope gently to the Mediterranean Sea.” ~ Claire Murray, Editor, La Vie Claire
