Grappenhall Lavender has long flower stems and makes a good
cut flower for bouquets or other crafts. For drying, cut when the
first buds open at the top of the flower wand. Both the leaves and the
flowers make good additions to potpourri and can be used in cooking. Try
blending Grappenhall Lavender with other culinary lavenders for use
Looking at the size of a lavender's leaves
is a good way to judge the size it will become. The larger the leaf the
bigger the bush and the faster it will grow.
Grappenhall Lavender is an
excellent choice when a 2 to 3 foot hedge is desired. It's bloom is a
little grayer than some of the other lavenders but it is still very
attractive and its size and profuse bloom more than makes up for the lighter wand color.
