Our Lavender and Bees

Our Lavender

Grosso Lavender (Lavandula x intermedia ‘Grosso')

A hybrid of French and English Lavender featuring tons of dark Purple flower spikes. Impressive profuse bloomer in the summer with a sweet fragrance.

Super Lavender (Lavandula x intermedia ‘Super’)

Lavender with very long stems with light purple/grey flowers. Like Grosso, it has a sweet, flowery scent.  It makes one of the best essential oils.

Hidcote Blue Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia)

An improved strain of Hidcote English Lavender with darkly colored lavender-blue flower spikes. Blooms in late spring. Compact and sweetly fragrant. Low camphor content makes this lavender perfect for culinary uses. 

 

Provence Lavender (Lavandula intermedia ‘Provence’)

Provence is a French hybrid lavender grown for essential oil and dried buds. It is highly fragrant with abundant purple flower spikes.

 

White Spike Lavender (Lavandula x intermedia “White Spike’)

White Spike has highly fragrant white blossoms. Blooms in mid-summer. It is an excellent variety for culinary uses as well as adding a striking

contrast in floral bouquets.

The Bees

As many of you know we were once again at a loss for words last spring. Our bee hives were destroyed  by a local family of black bears. While we are still committed to a hearty bee yard, we will be working to re-establish our compound this year. We appreciate all the kind words from friends and neighbors - Thank you!

We are new to beekeeping, and they teach us things all the time. They are quite fascinating to watch and are such a crucial part of the environment.  We hope to be as good of stewards to them as they are to our world.
