Field of Dreams: How to Start & Grow Lavender in New Hampshire

Presented by Missy Biagiotti

Come learn the art of growing lavender, as Missy Biagiotti shares her knowledge and experiences with us. Missy owns Lavender Fields at Pumpkin Blossom Farm in Warner, New Hampshire.

If you have struggled with keeping your lavender plants alive, or if you simply want tips to help your lavender plants to flourish, then you will not want to miss this program. Come sample lavender flavored goodies and beverages. Also there will be a selection of lavender products available for purchase after the presentation. 

Missy’s farm, dating back to 1790, once served as a boarding house during the Civil War and now welcomes guests for weddings and other events. Lavender Fields is 14 acres situated on a sunny sloping hillside and is home to more than 7,000 lavender plants. Among the showcased varieties are Phenomenal, Sensational and Big Time Blue. Visitors to the farm are invited to relax and enjoy their time in the lovely-scented fields.  Visitors also can harvest their own bundle of lavender to bring home and sample treats.

We will have lavender flavored goodies and beverages to enjoy during the presentation and there will be a selection of lavender products available for purchase after the presentation.
