We have 450 plants in six varieties: True Grosso, Provence, Hidcote, Folgate, Munstead, and Goodwin Creek which are a nice mix of French and English lavenders. We have three more beds prepared which will be planted in May of 2017, with more of the same varieties with the addition of Phenomenal. All of our gardens are planted and manage following organic practices, with no herbicides or pesticides, and are proudly offered for use to regional locavores.
We make handcrafted “tatted” lace using old world techniques. Anita has been making tatted crafts for more than 20 years and is a member of two Lace Guilds, and is the only tatter, worldwide, to complete the International Organization of Lace, Inc. (IOLI) Tatting Technical Proficiency Program. We sell a variety of tatted lace products and offer lace-making class. Her tatting has been highlighted and published in The Piedmont Virginia magazine.
Visit our cottage shop for lavender and lace items. Our shop products include: candles, lotions, teas, sugar and salts along with numerous culinary lavender blossoms and recipes. In the future we plan to add jams and honey. Our lace products include: earring, necklaces, doilies, dream pillows, and hot/cool neck packs. Our lavender is simple serene and our Lace is seldom seen.
We will be hosting seasonal events such as farm tours, craft classes, tatting lessons, and activities which accompany the blossoming of our lavender varieties. Check our events page for dates and time of hosted activities. We will also be supporting regional Farm Markets hosted in the Piedmont.
Lavender and Lace can provide fresh and dried lavender, and tatted lace products for weddings. We also offer a picturesque garden setting to host your event and exchange of vows. Bookings require a reservation and are limited.
