This April I am embarking on a new challenge; to grow my own lavender. At the moment, I source organic lavender from Provence in the south of France for my Labour of Love Eye Pillows and Weighted Pillows, which smells amazing and is of course sustainable but I am hoping to produce at least some of the lavender from the plants on my balcony.
I am lucky enough to have a mother who taught me about flowers and plants and to appreciate nature. I am hoping to start my daughter young (see photo!) and pass the same love of plants on to her. I am a bit of a hit and miss gardener, some of the plants on my balcony have thrived, others seem to die the moment I put them in a pot.
I'll take photos of the progress of the lavender plants. I would love to hear if any of you have had success with growing lavender in pots and if you have any tips.
