I finally did it! I now have a lavender garden. I got a very large plant from Mom and we divided it into 24 plants. I hope they do okay, I'll baby them. I need to do a little more research to find out about taking care of them, but they don't need a lot of water. For now I hope I can keep them alive. The rest of my yard is more or less a xeriscape, I'm not much of a gardener, we have a well and I don't want to waste water. Good excuse, huh?
Wish me luck!
