First Season ~ 2006

June 2006
Raised beds of Lavender

Rian said we should make the rows wavy like rows of Lavender we saw on Vashon Island. I called Penn Cove Farms on Whidbey Island and ordered 1 dump truck of their plain jane dirt which is a very sandy soil. It was not top soil…just dirt from the Island which is exactly what I wanted to try. I made the rows wavy and raised roughly 60′ long. I planted Various English Lavenders (Lavandula angustifolias) as well as English Lavender Hybrids, referred to as Lavandins.


Not really having everything thought out I planted first and laid the weed block second. As it turned out it was much easier to do it this way.
