This was our second year of growing lavender. Sequim is the “Lavender Capital of North America” so it was a natural fit to develop our ten acre farm into what has become known as Washington Lavender, an important facet of George Washington Inn and Estate. We distilled almost seven quarts of pure lavender oil from approximately 500 two-year-old plants. A quantity was also hung in the inn’s basement for de-budding over the winter months. Imagine how nice the inn smells with the lavender drying.
