New Jersey Lavender Farm
We have hundreds of field plants to dig up and purchase this fall and plan to have up to 300 Sensational Quart sized plants available for sale after Labor Day.
September is a superb month for planting. The plants will establish good roots in the fall and then can experience explosive growth next spring.
They should be planted 6 weeks before the first frost.
We grow and sell 5 varieties of Lavender: Big Time Blue, Phenomenal, Sensational, Melissa and Hidcote because they were developed for the Northeast climate. They are more likely to succeed than French or Spanish Lavenders which do better in cooler dryer climates and don't like humidity.
Lavender grows well in good draining soil, hillsides, raised mounds or beds. Lavender does well with 1/2 - full day of sun. It's deer resistant!
Lavender Sensational is the next generation of Lavender Phenomenal with incredibly large and thick flowers and sturdy stems. Broad SILVER foliage is thick, tough, and cupped. Dense habit with incredible branching stems. Extremely good heat and humidity tolerance along with cold tolerance. Sweet lavender floral aroma with low camphor.
Big Time Blue will flower several times in 1 season starting about June 1 and is hardy. The color is a pleasure to behold. It works well in culinary applications. We use in our simple syrup and breads.
Phenomenal grows robustly with elegant long stems, will attract numerous pollinators and Praying Mantis when full grown due to it's large size and huge volume of flowers. It starts flowering about the first day of Summer. It's a beautiful 4 season evergreen. It works well in culinary applications. We use in our simple syrup and breads.
Hidcote Blue is an ornamental herb. The silvery-gray fine foliage of this tall lavender compliments the deep purple flowers, making this the most popular of the English lavenders. Use ‘Hidcote Blue’ lavender to backdrop lower-growing perennials and annuals in shades of yellows for a complimentary color scheme.
Melissa Lilac has silver green foliage with soft lilac colored flowers blooming mid summer and a 2nd time if cut early. 24" tall and 24-30" wide- lovely for edging or a border. Amazing in a simple syrup.
