English Lavender

Harvested at just the right moment to preserve the blooms, dried English Lavender will add a year round touch of country to your home. Display on a table or shelf frequently passed by to get unexpected calming whiffs of lavender throughout your day. If using for crafting arrangements, separate stems ever so gently as to avoid fallen blooms. One of our favorite ways to use dried lavender is for gift wrapping. Add a few sprigs to a bow to top off a present for a loved one. The extra floral detail will make gift giving all that more special.
