Tour Tumalo Lavender: Gordon and Judy invite you to visit their greenhouse and view the fields of lavender. They offer 3” border plants or 1 gallon lavender plants for your garden. You will find lavender not only beautiful and sensory, but a practical choice for your garden. Lavender has a reputation for being notoriously non-palatable to deer. It is also considered a drought-tolerant plant and is easy to grow and manage.
The lavender is in full flower in mid-July and is at its peak for viewing and cutting. You can wander through the vibrant purple fields and take in the strong, sweet fragrance of lavender as you hand-cut your own bouquet.
