25 Years Later…

After 25 years of selling, growing and teaching about lavender, From The Potting Shed finally traveled to Provence, France to visit the lavender fields in full bloom.

We attended courses at lavender farms and took a tour of L’Occitane, France’s largest producer of lavender products including oil, soaps, linen water…

At a heritage farm we watched lavender being processed in the old fashioned way. In a huge vat, lavender is stuffed and boiled similar to the process of maple syrup. You boil it for what seems like forever only to have a small percentage become precious lavender oil. Following separation, the remaining water becomes lavender linen spray (or lavender water – one of our fav’s!).

Throughout the year, at our Stone Cottage Studio, we teach classes (culinary, gardening and floral arts) and workshops (wreaths, arrangements, DIY wedding florals) with a lavender theme.
