On Saturday, October 5th, 2019, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., Sunshine Lavender Farm is holding a FREE lavender fall planting clinic and sale at the Hillsborough Farmers Market, 430 Waterstone Drive, Hillsborough.
Learn how to plant and care for lavender with your local lavender farmers, Dale & Annie Baggett.
Bring your questions anytime during market hours and get the answers specific to your garden needs and concerns.
Q & A will happen all during the event, with no set workshop time. Your questions are similar to those of your neighbors and lavender loving friends and it’s way more fun chatting up lavender together, right? We will gather, discuss and troubleshoot so that you will have success growing lavender.
The farm will bring as many plants as possible and a wide assortment of varieties for bloom color and flowering time, size, scent, etc. Lavender especially appreciates starting out as a small seedling, then rooting in to get established in your garden. (From 4″ pots to 32″ in diameter in three short years to maturity for many varieties!) All plants will be well-rooted and ready to thrive in your garden.
