Timeless Fragrant Classic!

You remember it like it was yesterday. Riding your bicycle along the dusty lane in Provence, France when you turned the corner and were suddenly surrounded by acres of French Lavender stretching out in perfectly manicured rows for as far as the eye could see. You caught your breath and almost fell off of your bike. The beauty of the scene was only surpassed by the remarkable scent hanging heavy in the air.

Many a romantic has been seduced into moving to Provence just to be around this bit of heaven forever.

Thankfully you don’t have to pick up your life and sell all of your belongings to have a little slice of Provence every day. Order French Lavender (Lavendula dentate) from Nature Hills today and create your own ‘mini-Provence’ at home this year.

French Lavender is a highly fragrant evergreen shrub. It has strappy gray-green grass-like foliage that grows into a mound that is 2-3 foot tall and wide. It is covered in purple flower spikes that are the classic cut-flower. Use the flowers fresh in bouquets or dried in sachets. They can be used in the kitchen for everything from salads and infusions to teas and ice-creams. Try them in the bath in soap or lotions.

History records the ancient Phoenicians, Egyptians, Romans and Greeks used lavender in medicine, baths, hygiene and cosmetics. You know that something that has been around for that many centuries has got to be good for your own garden!

Lavender suites just about any garden style – formal or natural, cottage or contemporary. It is great in large urns and perfect along paths where your legs can brush against it to release that fabulous perfume.

We know that you can envision it in your own garden right now, so order it before we sell out!
