Four Reasons Knitters Grow Lavender in their Garden:

1- To repel pests from the yarn stash.
2- To make charming homemade sachets that add to a hand-knit gift and make it smell so wonderful when it is opened.
3- To add to lemonade served to friends when they come over to knit.
4- Because it is so lovely growing in the garden!

In the Southeast the key to growing lavender is really good drainage.
