Such a tiny book but with all the information I was looking for. This is truly the best book I have seen and I am so glad I found it. It told me much, much more than books that are 200 pages and cost a fortune. So thank you. I will be looking for more of this series.

I recommend that all gardners include this small but very useful book in their gardening library.
It gave me everything that I was looking for without having to wade through large heavy books.

This little gem is so full of useful information July 11 2006
By Elizabeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This little gem is so full of useful information it puts the other books I have on lavender to shame. Not only does it discuss the many varieties of lavender and their history and growing wants/needs. But one learns how to propagate, trim and use the various lavenders be it in bath items or medicinally, cooking or as gifts. I grow lavender and make various things from the plants but really want to try making the 'Net sachets' shown on page 24 which are gorgeous!

Lavender grower Aug. 24 2007
By Lavender Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a brief bulletin of information but still quite helpful. Ms. Barrett touches on the types, the maintenance and the uses of lavender. It's a small book, but I found tips and recipes in here that were missing in other lavender books. It's plain and simple, short and sweet. A very good basic reference book.

Bravo Sept. 6 2005
By JGRMA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This summer I planted 80 lavender plants in honor of my mom who recently passed away. This book has been a major part of the success my garden has achieved, with 2 harvestings of lavender to date. An excellent resource and inspiration for how to grow and use lavender

It's a pamphlet Feb. 19 2009
By lavendergirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a 32 page pamphlet giving a general overview. Half the pages are on growing, the other half on uses with simple recipes. It has some use as a cross reference against other, more in depth sources. As a grower I found it on the wanting side.
