LAVENDER is beautiful, fragrant and tasty. Indoors or out, lavender is a natural bug repellent, hated by fleas & moths. The nectar attracts beneficial insects to the garden; good COMPANION PLANT for veggies & fruit trees. Propagated by cuttings so get one plant and create many for use in the house and garden. CLICK PHOTO for recipes & ideas for use.
Sometimes using just one plant gives the drama and impact that you need. I don;t like many containers that are too busy and are just a hodge podge of color. The same with flower gardens. I like a theme that flows through the garden. It takes restraint in planning but looks by far the best, in my opinion!
