Sequim Lavender

Sequim Washington Lavender GrowersWikipedia:   Sequim, WA – The city and the surrounding area are particularly known for the commercial growth of lavender, supported by the unique climate: it makes Sequim the “Lavender Capital of North America”, rivaled only in France.

LavenderLavender may have gotten its name from the Latin for ’cleanse or wash’. (We and many of our equestrian friends use it to promote healing and to keep our horses’ wounds free of infection).

Since early times, lavender was credited with increasing higher states of consciousness during meditation. Well, not everyone meditates, but most people find that there is something very, very special and calming about lavender. It will make you feel special every time you see it in your home.

Blackberry Forest is simply perfect for growing lavender. We are located right on the bay, and our soil is the exact sandy loam that lavender thrives in.  Lavender  is particular about its not having ’wet feet’. With our very low rainfall in Sequim (17 inches per year) and the porous soil on our farm, we are able to grow the finest lavender that we have ever seen.
