We know a lot of you have trouble reaching us this time of year. From October through March, around here, everyone’s time is totally consumed with propagating lavender plants in a gallant effort to meet the ever increasing demand for this great plant. Our ‘Mother Plants’ are all grown outdoors in fields, soaking up the Olympic Peninsula fresh air and sunshine. We don’t keep them penned up in a temperature controlled greenhouse with artificial light nor do we use fertilizer or other chemicals to force their growth. Because our ‘Mother Plants’ are au naturel, we have only a small window of time to harvest and plant our starts. So from dawn to dusk you will find Victor either in the field or in the greenhouse planting our cuttings. (That’s the story of a farmer’s life you know)
Well, back to the problem at hand, we do our best to return calls and emails within 48 hours. (Mind you, we said we do our best.) The very best way to contact Victor is via email, firstname.lastname@example.org. If you choose to call, please leave a detailed message with your name and a direct contact phone number. Victor returns many calls in the evening so please leave direct numbers for both day and evening.
On another note, in October we remind you to get your orders in before the end of the year. We even throw out another reminder or two before the end of the year. This enables us to plan what we need to grow to fulfill our orders. We generously pad this amount to in an effort accommodate those who order late as we hate to disappoint. But once again, due to the ever growing popularity of our lavender, we are sold out of lavender that will be ready for spring planting. We might still have some Grosso available but it is going fast. We will have more available in June but if you have a large order and want to plant in June please submit your order before the end of March. If you still want to plant this spring email us with your wish list and we will do our best.
