Lavender Growing Seminars
We are looking to offer a seminar in the fall,
The Seminar will be held in our field with lunch, five lavender plants, and our growing guide with our ideas and information for starting a lavender business (value $35.00) is included in the cost of the workshop.
What will be covered:
- Planting Methods and Timing
- Row Spacing
- Water Needs and Irrigation
- Harvesting and Preserving Blooms
- Drying Blooms
- Potential Problems and Troubleshooting
- Marketing Ideas
The workshop is particularly geared to those who want to grow lavender as a business. The information we will share has been gathered over the years, and will provide the nuts-and-bolts information needed to start a lavender farm.
Much of the knowledge we have comes straight from lavender farmers in France, where we first got the idea for growing lavender in the Hill Country. We’ve also collected information from a lavender grower and broker in Oregon and a specialist with Texas A&M University. The rest of our knowledge has come to us the hard way, from trial and error and lots and lots of work.
The cost: $200 per person
$370 per married couple (or two people from the same family)
