At Lavender Abbey, we grow three types of lavender.
- French lavender (Lavandula x intermedia 'Grosso') – known for its extraordinary fragrance, high-quality essential oil and beautiful buds.
- English lavender (L. angustifolia 'Pacific Blue') – great for cooking and adding to teas and known for its sweeter fragrance and use in massage oils.
- English lavender (L. angustifolia 'Violet Intrigue') – noted for its vibrant, upright violet flower, strong soothing scent and use in massage oils.
