What do I do with this great bunch of lavender?
Re-cut the stems and place the bunch in a vase of fresh water.
To get the most life and fragrance from the bunch, we recommend
changing the water every day. You will notice that the water is
a little oily: the stems exude some lavender oil. It is good for
the flowers if the water is kept clean! The bunch will last from
7 to 10 days, depending on how many times you change the water
and where you place the bunch (direct sunlight will cause them to break down more quickly).
Many people dry their lavender and tell us that the
fragrance lasts for many months. Simply hang the bunch upside-down
away from direct sunlight (a great place to hang the lavender is in your closet: the bunch will dry nicely, and it will scent your clothes!). Air movement will ensure a speedy drying time. If you'd like, you can stand the bunch upright once it's dried..
