I was on the net this am trying to find a good source for lavender because I've decided that I want to plant in along my front walkway. I put some spanish lavendar in my yard this season and it is absolutely wonderful. I think I am addicted and want to try other varieties. The smell is intoxicating. Does anyone know if it is ok to plant lavender now in NJ -- I am just south of Trenton? Does anyone know a good source to purchase it online? I found a great place online and lost the bookmark :-( It was a farm and they had all sorts of varieties; they even made their own products with it -- like lavender soaps and such.
My walkway is pretty long and takes a "left." I thought it might be ncie to try a different variety around the bend -- or would this look too uniform? Should I mix it up some other way or just stick to one variety? The walkway ends at a 5' tall white picket fence and I thought I'd plant some globe allium and/or gladiator allium along this fence. There is a small-ish lawn between the fence and the walkway and there is an old pink dogwood planted here. We are putting a low red stone wall around the tree to make a raised planting bed in which I plan to plant icestick tulips, blue grape hyacinth, and peach and yellow hyacinths.
Any advance is appreciated.
