The lavender starts to color the landscapes of Provence since a few days. In the plains, the lavender harvest could start quickly if the weather remains good. As for the mountain lavender, the flowers are just beginning to show the end of their calyx.
But producers are watching with attention what is happening in other regions of France where lavandin crops are developing at high speed, according to this report broadcast on France 3 this weekend.
This investigation is not unlike the one we conducted a few years ago on the same subject!
No worries though…
The agricultural surfaces cultivated in lavender and lavandins remain such that the landscapes of Provence will keep their attractiveness for many years.
The members of the Endowment Fund for the Safeguarding of the Lavender of Provence ensure that the crops are maintained in their regions of origin so that Provence, Lavender and Sunshine remain the winning trio of summer vacations! Their work will be the subject of a future article.
