There are few things as beautiful and scenic( and as fragrant) as a field full of lavender in full bloom. Even when they’re being harvested, the organized rows of flowers and the farmers’ methodical run strike a beautiful contrast.
There is no one set season to harvest lavender because various regions of the season are best for different uses. Someone harvesting lavender to sell fresh will harvest it differently from someone who wants to sell it in dried bunches or turn it into fragrant sachets. The various forms of lavender and the climate it’s growing in can also affect harvest times. The three most commonly cultivated species are English lavender( lavandula augustifolia ), lavandin( lavandula x intermedia- a hybrid) and French/ Spanish lavender( lavandula stoechas ).
Bunches of fresh and dried lavender can stimulate plenty of fund for farmers, but products like soap, fragrant sachets or essential petroleums can increase their value by more than 100%.
