(http://www.pepinierelensoleillee.com/). Our more local supplier was a bit overwhelmed by our order last year so this time we had to go further afield. We have hundreds of lavender, verbena, savory and rosemary plants to get into the earth. As storms and rains were forecast for saturday we got straight on and planted all the lavender on one of our abandoned terraces. These plants will be visible from the road and we can wait to see them grow and flower. The storm came in the evening and watered our new plantation.
We also made the most of the good weather to harvest our thyme plants which we planted last year. These plants are spreading out and filling in the ground between the rows with baby thyme plants which we will transfer this autumn to increase our plantation.
