More than 1,200 plants in eleven varieties are planted in 5 large gardens. We feature: True Grosso, Provence, Hidcote, Folgate, Munstead, Gros Bleu, Fat Spike, Royal Velvet, Betty’s Blue, Melissa Lilac, and Phenomenal. This is a nice mix of French and English lavenders. We plant and manage our lavender following Certified Naturally Grown and organic practices. The lavender buds do not have any herbicides or pesticides and are proudly offered for use to regional locavores.
Tatted lace is hand-crafted using old world techniques. Anita has been making tatted items for more than 25 years, is a member of three Lace Guilds, and was the first tatter, worldwide, to complete the International Organization of Lace, Inc. (IOLI) Tatting Technical Proficiency Program. Anita recently completed her Master tatting in the Tatters Across Time proficiency. We sell a variety of tatted lace products and offer lace-making classes. Her tatting has been highlighted and published in The Piedmont Virginia magazine, on display in a museum, featured in newspaper articles and lace magazines, and has won many ribbons.
