  1. Tandy, we have lavender growing in the front, but not in the back any more – it seemed to do well if we ignored it and the weather was dry, but it doesn’t like being wet. I’ve never used it in cooking, although I do adore how it smells…

    • I am not a good gardener and I usually leave my plants to survive under their own steam 🙂

  3. I love lavender too. My favourite is a tender one called l. pinnata christiana (see http://blog.jerseylavender.co.uk/?p=206). It has fern-shaped, lemon scented leaves and unusual forked flower heads.It’s only drawback is that it makes a rather untidy plant.

    I also love lavender in cooking, but in moderation as you so rightly say! Your post reminded me of my intention to make Honey and Lavender Rye Bread from Richard Bertinet’s “Dough”. I made it this morning – delicious!

  7. Oh Oh Oh!!! Your posts are always so perfect for what I’m doing! I am planning (whenever I get some time) to use lavendar in some sweets. I haven’t decided what yet. Last year I made some wonderful lavendar blueberry ice cream and lavendar lemon ice cream. I adore using flowers in sweet treats whenever possible. I think many people don’t like it though and you have to be careful not to use too much.

  9. LOVE lavender – I had fresh lavender tea once and came down with the worst migraine I have ever suffered!
    I often put a couple of drops lavender oil in my bath in the evenings.

  10. Lovely lavender, and so useful. I have used them in my handmade soaps, unfortunately they lose their splendid colour but they still conjure up images of lavender fields in the sun.

    Lavender blossoms also go well with a salad and add that extra bit of colour.

    Lovely post, Tandy, thanks for sharing and have a fabulous weekend (take some time out, do not work too hard).
