Description

GOODWIN CREEK LAVENDER (Lavendula ginginsii) is probably the best lavender for the home garden - less susceptible to the myriad problems that can plague these sometimes sensitive class of herbs. Plants have gray leaves and beautiful bluish purple flowers. They grow in compact form 24"-36" h and just as wide. Perennial in zones 7-11 and I have grown and propagated successfully indoors over the winter. You will get a live plant in a 3" pot in the Spring at an appropriate time for growing in your zone. 

MEDICINAL PROPERTIES: The ancient Romans named it "lavender" which means "to wash" and it makes a delightful addition to the bath water. Lavender has been widely researched for its now established properties as an anti-septic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory. Hence its historic use in all manner of external applications. But now come studies that show it also has anti-depressant properties if brewed into a gentle tea.

GROWING TIPS: "High and dry" is the key with all lavenders. A sunny position with the right, well-draining soil, and do not over water!

DRYING FOR TEA AND OTHER USES: When we gather herbs for fresh use, we pick early in the morning, when still kissed by dew. But when we gather herbs for drying, we are going to wait until the sun has dried the dew, so that we do not get mildew forming when we dry. Gather small bunches of the healthiest plants and tie at the ends with string with a tail. Then hang in a protected environment. For me, it is from the shutters of my interior kitchen window over my sink. No sunlight at this window but plenty of fresh air as an overhead fan circulates during warmer months. This is ideal. Otherwise, special drying racks work well. The idea is to dry quickly, without sunlight, but plenty of air circulation to keep mildew from forming. Turn if necessary to make sure the bunch dries completely. When dry, crumple the leaves from the stems and store in airtight canisters.
