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.

Booklet is rudimentary in content. It arrived in a timely fashion. However, the last several booklets that I purchased in this series, has (in each of them) a hole punched through the entire booklet... punching out some key words...very frustrating.

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.

HASH(0x9fe4e48c) out of 5 stars 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.

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

HASH(0x9fe4e918) out of 5 stars Comprehensive for its size March 27 2013
By Holly S Rivney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This guide has the important information in the msot detail and the lesser information in the less detail - the way it should be. There are paragraphs on several varieties, how to propagate, plant from seed, prune, harvest, maintain, etc. She also mentions some uses for lavender, some reciepies, and crafts. One thing she forgot to mention that I will tell you is that most species of lavender cannot be eaten. The only two varieties you should look for if you want to use the lavender in recipies are Lavendula agustifolia or Lavendula X intermedia, and there are many varieties of each of these but the rest should not be consumed. I would have liked to known the author's thoughts on selling lavender. This was published in 1996 and the information is relevant, although missing internet resources. Worth the $4, not a lot of fluff but actual applications and directions.

HASH(0x9fe4ecc0) out of 5 stars 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.
