to Sequim Lavender Weekend!

Take a deep breath and smell the lavender in the air. That sweet scent will help you to relax and enjoy all that the weekend has to offer. Enjoy the street fair in Downtown Sequim featuring the works of talented artisans and hand-crafted lavender items. There is plenty of music and good food throughout, and this year, there is even a street dance on Saturday night. Take a drive through the Sequim-Dungeness Valley and visit the world famous lavender farms. I encourage you to visit as many as you can, as each one is unique. In addition to beautiful fields of lavender, be sure to visit the farm gift shops which include products made from their own lavender. Some are hosting their own farm festivals with food, music and demonstrations and most of the farms offer the chance for you to pick your own fragrant bouquet. While you’re enjoying all of that lavender, be sure to check out the other events sponsored by the Sequim community. A quilt show, art shows, concerts, farmers market and live theater are just a few of the events that round out the weekend and will help you to make the most of your visit to Sequim. On behalf of the City of Sequim, I want to thank everyone who works hard all year to make this event so special. Welcome and enjoy! Candace Pratt, Mayor, City of Sequim

Welcome to the

19th Annual Sequim Lavender Festival®

It is with great pleasure and a lot of hard work that the Sequim Lavender Growers Association™ works year-round to produce this event. This would not be possible without the support of the City of Sequim as well as each member of the SLGA and our staff. Colleen Robinson has taken on the lead role of Executive Director of Operations. She is a valued-added addition to our staff. Our most important mission is to educate the general public on the beauty of lavender in your own personal garden. We also take great pride in working with other nonprofits in the community

to produce this event. A BIG thanks to the local Boys & Girls Club of Sequim, the local Red Cross and the Lions Club of Sequim, who help make our event possible. We value the community we live in and want to make sure it is highlighted in the most positive light. There is so much in our wonderful valley that the visitor can come and see besides lavender. Of course, we want you to see our lavender farms as well as our great Street Fair with our many lavender farmers in attendance, but while you are here, please visit our local attractions. The Olympic Game Farm has been a standard of family fun for over 40 years. Along with its driving tour, it offers a new “Mini

Tour” which now includes a petting farm, freshwater aquarium, a guided tour through the education area and a historical studio barn tour. Graysmarsh Berry and Lavender Farm, one of our members, has been making families smile and enjoying the fresh varieties of berries for years. We personally picked our buckets of berries when our girls where young and took them back to California to make our yearly jam, not to mention making wonderful syrup at the campsite for our pancakes! YUM, it doesn’t get better than that! The Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Club of Sequim has been donating beautifully made quilts to many organizations for years. When they donate to us, we once again give

back to the community with all our raffle proceeds going into scholarship funds. We were very pleased this year to give a scholarship to Cole Keenhner, a 2015 graduate of Port Angeles High School, with a very bright future. Last but not least would be Nash’s Organic Farm store where you can get fresh vegetables and fruits and more in their charming store located in the heart of the fields they work. Please enjoy our beautiful FREE farms and your time in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley and surrounding mountains. Mary Jendrucko, Executive Director, Sequim Lavender Festival. Member since 1999 of the Sequim Lavender Growers Association.

Over 44 years ago Harry and Gail Nelson purchased 40 acres of undeveloped land in Sequim with the dream of one day retiring there. Over the years they sold off parcels to put their five children through school, ending up with 5 acres of

their own. In 1996, the Nelsons joined the Sequim Lavender Growers Association and the family has been a member ever since. The Nelsons’ daughter Amy Lundstrom and her husband, Jeff, purchased the farm seven years ago.

Sequim Lavender Weekend 2015

This year we celebrate 15 years that our lavender farm has been open to the public and we are looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. When we were developing our lavender farm and doing our landscaping, we did so with our future visitors in mind. We wanted those that came here to feel welcomed and at home. Our gift shop was developed with a lavender theme and contains locally produced lotions, soaps, a culinary line and other gift items that are lavender-related. Plants are available for those who want their own lavender experience. Each year we try to introduce new items and are at the point where we have difficulty displaying all the products and gifts we have. Our fields of lavender were laid out as part of the landscaping rather than a commercial appearance. We welcome visitors to walk along the fields and take in the aroma and beauty that lavender provides. Artists and photographers are welcome to capture the natural beauty that lavender provides. To help us provide a welcome and assistance during the Sequim Lavender Weekend, we have several family members come stay with us. They are a great help in the gift shop and parking and enjoy meeting our visitors. It is amazing to us and to our family where our visitors come from. Not only do we have visitors from all over North and South America, but also from all the continents from cities and towns small and large.


Martha Lane Lavender is an award-winning certified organic, certified salmon-safe lavender farm set among towering Douglas-fir trees.

Their “Sachet” variety essential oil won Best Essential Oil at the U.S. Lavender Growers Conference in 2013. Come and see for yourself if this is your favorite! The certified-organic lavender field is open for U-cut fresh bundles, exploring and photo ops with family and friends. A vista of purple lavender abounds with bees buzzing all around in the process of their work. Family and friends will distill fresh lavender into essential oil and hydrosol throughout the day for your viewing pleasure. Sweet treats of lavender ice cream, lemonade and such will be available for purchase. Last but not least, Mike and Julie welcome you into their charming Victorian-style home for a relaxed shopping atmosphere where they sell their handmade soaps, essential oils

• Bagpiper Dr. Tom McCurdy • tmccurdy@olypen.com It was Bergen, our daughter, that encouraged me to play the pipes again after taking off 27 years when raising our family. I originally learned the pipes as a beginner with the Brian Boru Irish pipe band of St. Paul, Minn. In Port Angeles I have had the best of instruction and encouragement from Don Alward, the pipe major for the former North Olympic Highlanders. There is a demand for ceremonial piping and I find great satisfaction in volunteering for schools, veterans groups, law enforcement and civic activities. I also teach the pipes and perform for private celebrations and memorials. • Blues County Sheriff • www.bluescountry.com This joyful music celebrates the greatness of post-war bluesmen like Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Paul Butterfield, James Cotton and more.

We’ve also been working up sets for swing dance, particularly East Coast Swing. Our music is dance music and we aim to get y’all out on the floor shaking it up,” says lead singer and guitarist, da Sheriff. Members of the band include: da Sheriff, lead singer and guitarist; Pistol Packin’ Mama Darlene Jones, dynamo drummer; Gant “The Harpoon” Eichrodt, vocals and harmonica; Jailbird Jimmy “Fingers” Harlan, keyboard; and “Death Row” Don Parr, bass and vocals.

Cindy Mangutz began painting at an early age in Southern California and was commissioned by one of her mother’s friends at the age of 16 to paint a conquistador. By her early 20s she knew that art was her calling! After marrying woodcarver Steve Mangutz and moving to Leavenworth, they flourished as artists and their careers took off at Art in the Park. Cindy turned her focus to a primitive style of painting while Steve began a line of incredibly detailed Santa Clauses. They opened their first shop North Wind Gallery. They both were selected by the Bill Dodge Folk Art Gallery in Carmel, Calif., where they sold original paintings and wood carvings for three years. In the early 1990s the couple and their two children moved to Port Townsend where they opened another shop that was shared by many artists. They began to participate in more and more arts and crafts fairs including the Harvest Festivals in California and still are “old permanent fixtures” at many of Pacific Northwest shows. Cindy’s influences include Grandma Moses and Charles Wysocki and her inspiration is from the natural beauty found in the Pacific Northwest. You can see her visualization of the sea in the brilliant water colors shown in her nautical art and the many shades of green from the forests found in her landscapes. Her work has been published on cards, cookie tins, runner rugs and open edition prints. Her line of limited edition prints surpasses 150 and she accepts a number of original acrylic paintings every year — “memory commissions” as she calls them. Steve makes bentwood twig furniture as well as carving gnome and Santa figures. She lives on 10 “developing” acres with her husband Steve where they also work on their line of rustic twig/log furniture and garden items. She gained national television exposure on the shopping channel QVC where her “Four Seasons of Washington” print series sold out. For a short period, Cindy and Steve moved to Southern California to help her mother. The call of the North was too great for them and soon they were back where they belong, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, which has inspired so many of her artworks and Steve’s wood carving. This is the third time Cindy has been chosen for the official Sequim Lavender Festival Poster artwork. She also did the City of Sequim Centennial artwork in 2013.

Gardeners who include lavender in their landscapes savor the fragrant and aesthetic benefits of this versatile plant. However, not all lavender is savory for culinary or edible purposes. The varying flavors of lavender are imparted from the oils in the buds, which differ in a wide selection of plant varieties. One distinctive substance contained in the oils (bud) is camphor. Although touted for its therapeutic, relaxing and “lavenderish” scent, lavender with high concentrations of camphor is not tasty. Lavender buds, either fresh or dried selected from the Angustifolia varieties are commonly more flowery and sweeter in fragrance, non-pungent and more suitable for cooking. The “Royal Velvet” and “Folgate” varieties are very popular for cooking and should be sought out for their color-holding features after cooking and preparation. The “Provence” variety from the Intermedia varieties also is edible. Lavender as a food ingredient is known to continually impart or blend its oils (flavor) into your recipes, especially cakes and cookies, after they have been prepared. For this reason, cut back on lavender portions if you prepare recipes to be served three or more days later. Fresh-cut lavender foliage and stems also are useful to cover and baste fish and fowl preparations on a summer barbecue. There have been over 6,200 hits or downloads for Dr. Lavender’s “Lavender Owner’s Manual,” retrievable from the Sequim Lavender Festival website, www.lavenderfestival.com. We take pride in our Sequim Lavender Growers Association’s 501(c)(6) nonprofit status as including an educator in the cultivation of lavender, (and grandchildren), and creating drought-tolerant landscapes. We accomplish this by distributing training materials, providing lectures to garden clubs and others and opening up our farms to view upclose-and-personal how lavender can fit in your landscape or as part of a business venture. Our entire festival is dedicated to bringing to you the best lavender has to offer in a family friendly atmosphere. As a long term nonprofit, we insist that admission to our festival and farms, fragrance and advice are free. “We’ll Keep the Lavender Blooming.” A part of Sequim Lavender Weekend.

Olympic Game Farm 360-683-4295 • 1423 Ward Road olygamefarm.com Drive tours are the main attraction at the farm. The tour takes you through 84 acres of terrain, giving visitors a unique “face to face” interaction from your vehicle. A self-guided driving tour features hundreds of animals and lasts about 45 minutes. In addition to the driving tour, our summertime combo tour includes a visit to our petting farm, aquarium, duck pond, pheasant aviary and raccoon enclosure, as well as a guided tour of our reptile house and historical studio barn. Olympic Game Farm is the place to get face to face and experience wildlife at close range, offering visitors the opportunity to really see a tiger’s stripes, a rare white Siberian tiger, a Kodiak bear’s huge size, or to get slobbered on by a buffalo! With over 200 animals onsite, our driving tour leaves our visitors with vivid memories of these amazing creatures — experiences which, at first are hard to imagine, become pleasantly surprising. Friendly llamas and yak eat bread from your hand, clowning bears stand up and wave, and the elk and buffalo peacefully graze in the pastures. For over 40 years, Olympic Game Farm has provided an opportunity for visitors from all over the world to learn and observe wildlife, igniting countless imaginations. Lloyd Beebe passed along his trait, his dedication and his love for wildlife to his grandsons Rob-

ert Beebe and James Beebe, who have taken over the daily operations of the Olympic Game Farm since 2008. Dungeness Valley Creamery 360-683-0716 • 1915 Towne Road dungenessvalleycreamery.com The Dungeness Valley Creamery is a family owned and operated raw milk dairy located in Sequim. We practice the most clean and sanitary conditions from the milking parlor to our customers. We eat and drink what we produce and are proud to be a provider of this high-quality natural food throughout Western Washington. We, the Brown family, operated our first dairy in Sequim when we purchased 20 cows in 1971. In 1973, we purchased a 76-acre farm in Everson where we milked Holsteins under contract to a large milk processor. Upon returning home to the North Olympic Peninsula in 1989, we built our current facility from the ground up and started producing milk in 1992. At that time, we switched our herd from Holsteins to Jerseys to improve the richness and quality of our milk. In 2006, Dungeness Valley Creamery became a certified raw milk dairy in pursuit of keeping our family’s farm sustainable. Today, the Dungeness Valley Creamery is located on the Dungeness River one mile from the historical community of Dungeness. It is home to 38 acres of lush pasture, 60 Jersey cows, the newly built creamery and the Brown family home.

QUILT RAFFLE Stop by the Sequim Lavender Growers Association booth at the Street Fair on Fir Street and purchase a chance to win a quilt donated by the Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Club of Sequim. Each year, the club donates a quilt to the Sequim Lavender Festival. The quilt being raffled off this year was displayed at last year’s festival. All proceeds from the quilt raffle go to various scholarship funds. Tickets can be purchased for $1 at the booth. The drawing takes place Sunday and you don’t have to be present to win. Last year’s winner was Karen Wejmar from Sacramento, Calif. The screams of joy were heard throughout the Street Fair when her name was drawn. Her sister Cindy Fager was a vendor at the Street Fair. This year we awarded a $750 scholarship to Cole Keehner who is a 2015 graduate of Port Angeles High School. After his first year, he will be awarded a three-year scholarship to the U.S. Army. It was our pleasure to help him with his first year’s tuition. Another quilt donated by the club will be displayed at the Street Fair’s center stage throughout the weekend and will be raffled off at next year’s Sequim Lavender Festival. Once again, thank you to the Sunbonnet Sue Club of Sequim for its generous donation, time and talent!

Four years ago we changed the name of “volunteer” to “Lavender Ambassadors.” We did this to show how much we appreciated them and to let them know not only are they helping the Sequim Lavender Growers Association, but more importantly are reflecting the charm and goodwill of Sequim and our surrounding valley. Many of them walk through the Street Fair proudly letting the visitors know about our area. Many of the “Lavender Ambassadors” we have for our event are family members from each of the farms on tour. They are too numer-

ous to list, but each one a valuable member of our event! Thanks to family members who come from near and afar. We also would not want to forget about all the volunteers who are at the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce during Sequim Lavender Weekend and all yearlong helping guide visitors. A huge THANKS to them as well. Our volunteer crews are small but mighty! We really appreciate each one taking the time to help make our 19th Sequim Lavender Festival such a great event.

Our family is excited to share our fourth farm tour with you. Come visit our “Garden of the Sun,” the only farm surrounded by hundreds of acres of untouched Dungeness scenery. This year we are adding new crafts, adding more vendors, continuing favorite Jardin du Soleil traditions and, back by popular demand, adding a free shuttle service from downtown out to the farm. While visiting Jardin du Soleil, some of the things we are proud to offer are the experience of getting lost (and found) in our garden maze, listening to the bees while cutting your own fresh bundle and watching your family smile while they enjoy our new and unique family friendly lavender crafts. Relax as you listen to great music on the lawn or while browsing over 25 vendors featuring some amazing handcrafted jewelry, art, clothing and more. Our gift shop is fully stocked with Jardin du Soleil signature products and so many new products you’ve just got to see. Because we know that you love festival food, we have brought back Maggie May’s Espresso and Outfitter, voted the best food truck in western Washington (fingers crossed for elk burgers). Make sure to get to Thor early if you want to try some of Viking Feasts chocolate ice cream. Of course, he’ll have lavender ice cream, too, featuring local Dungeness Valley Creamery milk and Jardin du Soleil Royal Velvet lavender. This year we are happy to announce that we have teamed up with Olympic Lavender to bring you over 10 acres of Dungeness Lavender Festivities — which means two great farms for one admission. By starting your day at the Jardin du Soleil Lavender Festival and taking advantage of our free shuttle service running to downtown Sequim and Olympic Lavender every 20 minutes all weekend long you can experience all that Sequim Lavender Weekend has to offer. We look forward to seeing you out on the farm!

LOST MOUNTAIN LAVENDER FARM Nestled in the valley below the majestic Olympic Mountains, Lost Mountain Lavender is a three-acre farm with over 120 different varieties of lavender and a wide assortment of trees and a beautiful orchard with cherry, plum pear and apple trees for guests to enjoy. Owners Ray Veihl and Monica Quevedo invite you to stop and smell the lavender. Now on their fourth year of working a sustainably managed farm, their intent continues to be growing beautiful flowers without harming people or the earth, which means no pesticides or chemicals. They want as little impact on the environment as possible, especially for the bees they are hosting from Sequim Bee Farm that are busy making their delicious lavender honey. This year they’ve planted a new sample garden that contains 100 lavender varieties, a good place to take a nice stroll and compare the myriad species of the plant. The water wheel continues to be a popular place for photos and while you’re visiting, be sure to stop by the Cottage Gift Shop. Rumored to be an old moonshiner’s shed, this vintage building has been converted into a charming gift shop that holds a vast array of handcrafted lavender products, from soaps to fire starters, all made on the farm. Join them Lavender Weekend and do as much or as little as you like, from lavender crafts, oil distilling and pottery throwing demonstrations, to finding out what it takes to buy a lavender farm with Jace Real Estate. Learn about how some great organizations rescue and train dogs to help people and enhance lives with Dogs for the Deaf, New Leash on Life and Central Valley Animal Rescue. Or grab a chair and relax with a glass of wine or beer to some great music and delicious barbecued food.

Sequim Lavender Weekend 2015

Making a lavender wand Lavender wands are a wonderful old English craft that has been revived. There are a few varieties of lavender that lend themselves well. Grosso is the best. It has long stems, which are quite pliable, a large flower and it is very fragrant. Provence is very fragrant; sweeter than Grosso; however, the stems are more brittle. Fresh lavender must be used. Cut stems as long as possible when flowers are at the swollen bud stage or with some buds popped into blossom. The Grosso blooms in mid- to late July. The Provence from July-October. 1. Pick the lavender. A wand must be made with an odd number of stems — 13-15 work well. 2. Strip off any leaves and small bunch of flowers that are below the main flower (save these for other floral work) so the stem is totally smooth. Line up the flowers so the bottoms are even. Cut a piece of string 12 inches long. Wrap it around the stems once and tie a knot as close to the base as possible. Cut close so the string will not show through the wand. Pull stems down if necessary so that the string is very flush to the bottom of the flowers. 3. Turn this “bunch” upside down and hold the flowers in your left hand. Bend the stems down over the flowers one at a time. The stems should be evenly spaced around the “bunch.” 4. Cut 4 yards 1/4-inch double faced satin ribbon. Leave about a 10-inch tail of ribbon and start weaving by placing the ribbon under a stem. Remember to leave the 10-inch tail. This is going to be the hanger. Go over the next stem and under the following. When you have gone under the fifth stem, bring the end of the tail over and place it under the ribbon between the fifth and sixth stems. Continue to weave around to finish the first row. 5. Start the second row directly under the first. The hanger should now be secure. Tie a knot in the hanger at its bottom so the knot is at the center. 6. Continue to weave over and under the stems keeping the ribbon fairly tight as you go. The lavender flowers will shrink as they dry, so you want the ribbon to be tight. After about three rows the wand is secure and you can release the death grip you have had around it and rest the cramp in your hand! Move any stems that need it to space them evenly around the wand. Continue to weave until all the flowers are covered up; approximately 13 rows. Wrap the ribbon down around the stem and tie temporarily. The wand will shrink as it dries. When dry, hot glue the ribbon to the stem. 7. The ribbon that is left, which should be about 2 yards, can be used to make a bow with five loops on each side and four streamers. Hot glue the bow to the wand at the base of the flowers.

B&B FAMILY FARM B&B Family Farm (formerly Angel Farm) is pleased to be open for this year’s Sequim Lavender Weekend. We will be having the grand opening for our farm store (The Shoppe) on Thursday, July 16, and will remain open for the remainder of the summer. Bruce and Bonnie (B&B) McCloskey along with Zion, Kristy and Harper Hilliker are excited about our farming adventure on Old Olympic Highway, just across the road from the Sequim airport. We are the conspicuous lavender farm with the huge barn and old farm-style home. As the relatively new owners of this 12-acre farm, we have been busy getting ready for our visitors. We now have over 4,000 newly planted lavender plants in addition to the several thousand that were already on the farm. We grow naturally without chemicals and take special pride in the quality of our plants, buds, bouquets and made-on-the-farm lavender products. For our first year open to the public, we will be rather low key, choosing to focus on our beautiful lavender fields, U-pick and new farm store. We have plenty of parking and there will be no charge to visit our farm. We welcome families and those wanting a more serene and peaceful atmosphere to absorb all our farm has to offer. Even if we are harvesting during Sequim Lavender Weekend, please stop by and take a look around. You may even get to see the “jitterbud” lavender bud-cleaning machine in action or our still distilling lavender oil. We join all the lavender farms, growers and vendors in welcoming our visitors to the Lavender Capital of North America. Enjoy your time on the Olympic Peninsula!

GROWING LAVENDER a couple of inches of green above the woody stems. This may seem severe, but they will respond very well to this “hair cut.” When your lavender has blossomed, the flowers can be picked for many uses. If you desire a fresh bouquet, pick the blossoms when one-fourth to one-half of the flowers are open. If picking for sachet bud, pick when 75 to 100 percent of the stalk is flowered out. You can dry the lavender from your plants by cutting bundles of 100-150 stems per bundle. Wrap a rubber band around the bottom of your bundle and make an s-hook out of a paper clip and hang upside down in a warm, dry, dark place. Drying will take a couple of weeks depending on the weather. To create your own sachet, rub the bundle between your hands over a wire mesh screen with a fan blowing beside the bundle. The “fines” will fall through the screen and the fan will blow the chaff away. This will leave some of the leaves

Plant your new lavender plants giving them plenty of room to spread out 2 to 3 feet. They love sun and good drainage. Select a variety that is hardy for your area: Angustifolias (the English types) being the hardiest. The stoechas (Spanish types) usually are hardy for Northwest winters. For gardening zone below 8, the Spanish varieties would be good container plants, since they could be enjoyed inside during the winter months. When planting out in the garden: Mix chicken manure and bone meal (about 1/2 cup of each) well into your soil before planting. If your soil is hard clay, mixing some sand in will help to loosen the clay. If the plant is root bound, loosen the roots before planting. If the plant is tall or spindly, cut back to encourage more lateral vegetative growth. Using sand for mulch around the plant keeps the plant clean and reflects light back up into the plant, thus creating more heat. More heat creates more fragrant blooms. Prune your plant in the fall to two-thirds of its size, leaving

and stems out of the lavender buds. What remains then is clean lavender for sachet use, culinary use, pillows, etc.

Pruning is essential

There are two lavandulas that are commonly grown in Sequim for production. 1. Angustifolias — these plants are native to high altitudes and are the hardiest. Their aroma is sweet with little or no camphor. They bloom early, in early to mid-July. They can stand heavy pruning. After the main harvest, these plants will often throw more blooms in September. They should be pruned hard in October. If one wants cuttings from these plants, the 2-yearold plants will provide many beautiful cuttings in September. The bulk of cuttings are, however, taken from Angustifolias in the spring. 2. Lavandins — These plants are native to middle elevations. They are hybrids between Angustifolias and Latifolias (Spike). With the Ang. at the high elevations and the Lat. at the low elevations, there occurred a cross between the two midway. Thus the lavandins are also called Intermedias. These plants bloom mid- to late July and into August. They also can

be pruned quite hard. For commercial growing of lavender pruning is essential and must start early. Pruning controls your plant and harvest. It forces new vigorous healthy growth, controls the shape and size of plant, determines location of blooms, improves circulation and controls the timing of blooms and lengthens life span. When the plants are still in pots, they should be cut back. One third and up to one half of the plant can be cut. This will encourage lateral branching and thus more flower production the following year. When plants are put in the ground the first year, they should not be allowed to bloom. Keep them cut back and they will reward you with more flowers next year. This can be a hard thing to do when you so want to see the plants blooming, but it really is a good thing. Plants should be cut back at least once a year during their life span. This should be done in fall well before danger of a hard freeze. That means pruning in October, giving the plants a month or so to heal the cuts before any hard freezes. Weedeaters and hedge trimmers work well for pruning. Make sure there are green leaves to be seen when cutting back. If the plant is cut too far back, it may not survive. Cut as close to the woody part without cutting into the wood. Plants that have not been pruned in the beginning of their growing career may not survive heavy pruning. Start with lighter pruning for this to encourage lower leaf growth. Then continue each year to prune a little heavier. In Virginia McNaughton’s book, “Lavender — the Grower’s Guide,” there is a section on pruning and also a great picture that shows a plant in full bloom; then cut back (pruned); and then with new growth. The plant that is cut back looks pretty sad. Lots of wood with a few sprigs here and there. But

in the spring the plant is gorgeous with all its new growth. So for those of you who are new to pruning, do not despair when you look at the cut back plant. With yearly pruning, weed control, watering if needed, fertilizing if needed — may need to test soil periodically, your lavender plants should produce very well for 10-15 years.
