Pod Skowronkami we will find several lavender varieties. Different shades of lavender color as well as different odors are the effect of work on the expansion of the offer. On-site, we can buy cuttings and listen to cultivation and conditions that will ensure optimal flowering of these beautiful flowers. The best time for the purchase of seedlings, however, is the beginning of the season, the period before the blooming flowers. So if we want to plan our own lavender bushes, we must go to place in April / May.
In addition to the seedlings, we buy ready-made, small bouquets, fragrance pillows, spreading at home a pleasant lavender smell, as well as braided, colorful fuses / sachets. We can also buy a lavender wreath, but it is quite expensive, because there is a serious amount of lavender to its product.
Lavender is also a beautiful scenery for fans of photography. The more so that insects are numerous in the near lavender flowers, mainly farts, and butterflies appear in the windless days. It happens that hundreds are accumulated in the area of lavender bushes.
Pod Skowronkami we will buy not only everything related to lavender. We also have herbs, fresh rucola, basil, mustard and many others, including lesser herbs, which can be an inspiration for our kitchen.
