Here at Sage Creations Organic Farm we grow over 5 acres of lavender. Growing lavender was inspired from the love of growing herbs. Lavender is one of the most versatile and well known herbs that can be dated back to roman times. It is an herb that is both seductive and useful in many forms. We grow over 50 cultivars and three species(a small fraction of what exists in the plant world).
The Lavandula species comes from the large plant family of mints (Labiatiae, syn. Lamiaceae). It is related to culinary and herbal tea mints, sage-both ornamental and culinary, marjormas, thymes, and horehounds. Apart from being a wonderful landscape plant, lavender’s essential oil and hydrosol can be used in bath and beauty products; lavender buds and corrollas can be used in both savory and sweet dishes; lavender makes a great addition to one’s culinary and medicinal herb garden. Lavender truly has attributes of endless possibilities.
