I’ve been working in the garden(s) the past couple of days [and have the blisters to prove it]. Lots and lots of ‘volunteer’ lavender seedlings/plants happily growing in the footpaths! I hate to pull-up and discard [compost] lavender. So, on a cool-ish, cloudy day, I tenderly removed and offered ‘free’ bare-root transplants for anyone willing to adopt and pick-up a few [three dozen] lavender plants. They’re mostly hidcote and munstead variety.
These are the freebies! I ‘offered’ them up to a good gardening home on fb and had a taker within minutes! 😀
I have RECLAIMED the footpath in my rose garden! HOORAY! …and not one lavender plant was ‘wasted’.
I moved on to another lavender garden [our lavender bloom is late this year] to weed, trim and transplant a few more lavender volunteers!
Here’s what I did with the lavender trimmings!
I tossed the ‘trimmings’ into the baby goat kids’ pen!
A crowd soon formed: ‘What is this stuff?’ they inquired.
They inspected it closely…
…and began to rub their heads into the heady-smelling plant!
It smells so good…they considered taking a nap in it!
YIPPI! Goats love lavender too!!! Have a great weekend!!!
That’s hysterical! Could you do a tutorial post on how to prune lavender sometime? I’m just getting started with mine and don’t know what my next step should be.
Thanks…yes, I can…great idea!
