This is a neat spot for those folks who enjoy natural lavender. While they had already harvested the lavender, it was drying in the store and smelled amazing. Just about any product you can imagine - even lavender chocolate!

In Georgia you cannot grow rows and rows of lavender due to our high humidity and lots of rain. Lavender gets root rot if too wet. So the different garden areas we have allow plants air flow and to prevent root rot. We have over...More

I can’t believe they charge $5 to look at this pathetic field of lavender. I was shocked how small the lavender field is and was very underwhelmed. Skip this and go to a plant nursery and look at their pots of lavender.More

The fact that you cannot grow lavender in GA is a miracle. We have 2,000 plants in the ground. We are told by agri-tourism to charge while Lavender is in bloom. Most gardens charge more but we only to a minimum and only charge adults....More

To start, this event is extremely underwhelming. There is no direction for parking and the parking attendants try and double park the cars so people are blocked in. Even when you clearly state you do not want to be double parked and blocked in, they...More

I guess we were not aware of this since our purchases occurred first. I doubt you would leave without a purchase which would make your visit free. :)
