Lavender Consulting

October 27th, 2011 by victor

When you have a question about lavender, ask Victor Gonzales, owner of Victor’s Lavender. Whether you are a new lavender farm owner, an experienced grower who needs information on the latest soil preparation techniques or a grower who wants help making your farm tourist friendly, Victor can help.

“My one-on-one consulting services are really more like a personalized eight-hour workshop,” Victor says. “It is not for people who just have a few questions. When I go into a consulting session, I literally start from the ground up to find ways to make their lavender and business healthier.”

Victor has helped lavender growers in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley save entire fields of the fragrant herb by providing advice on planting, irrigation and fertilizing techniques.

“I love the challenge of helping people,” he says. “I listen to their questions and then go over ways they can become more successful.”

Consulting fees vary depending on need, but generally start at $500 for a full, eight-hour day. When travel is required, additional travel-related costs will be billed. Consulting within a 100 miles of Sequim is $200 for no more than 2 hours consultation.
