|Green Fringed French Lavender|
|'Goodwin Creek' Lavender|
The middle lavender 'Goodwin Creek' (Lavandula x ginginsii) was purchased in the spring at Trader Joe's and it has had an up and down year. I think just recently The Herbal Husband has been giving it too much water and it started to die back in the center. He cut the dead bits out and it is coming back from the bottom. It is a little too big for a windowsill so we will have to come up with an alternative solution in the coming days! At least have it positioned near the western windowsill.
The third lavender is a Spanish or maybe a French one or maybe even an Italian one (Lavendula stoechas) but no cultivar name that I bought at Lavender Fields Herb Farm in Virginia. They just put up their schedule for the fall season. Getting back to the name, in the United States we called it Spanish, in the UK they call it French and in Australia they call it Italian lavender. Whatever you call it, it is a very cute grayish green bush. It hasn't flowered yet and I hope it will make it on a windowsill through the winter.
So it has stopped raining heavily. Our figs have started to ripen finally. We got the first of the green figs a couple of days ago. We are going to have to start moving plants inside sooner than later. Need to start digging plants up and placing them in containers. I got a question about lemon verbena from a reader about what happens when it comes inside after doing so well outside. You are doing everything right Penny! So refer to the Lemon Verbena Fact Sheet on my home page. Feels like I have neglected my herb garden this season. Hopefully, I can get some enjoyment with the cooler temperatures coming. Hope you are having a great day wherever you maybe! Talk to you later.
