Or before it gets too hot in our case. We’ll be taking a few weeks hiatus from the Nampa Farmers’ Market during the month of August to avoid some of the hottest temperatures of the summer that can be hard on our natural handmade products. This Saturday will be the last chance until September to see us there so don’t miss out!
We’ve got a few lavender plants left that need good homes. We’ve discounted them to $12 for the gallon size. Want several? Email for an even better deal. You will also want to grab some homemade lavender shortbread and try our new lavender salt grinders and tea blend. Don’t miss our Brittanna Lavender pedicure sets which include a full size bath salts, peppermint lavender foot scrub, and body butter for only $30.
Just because we won’t be at the Market for a bit, doesn’t mean you can’t find us. We’ll have inventory on hand and can fill custom orders. Don’t hesitate to email us if you need some pampering products for a birthday or baby shower gift. And if you are the party host, order up some lavender shortbread or tea. We are happy to deliver to Treasure Valley locations.
We’ve got plants! And we want to get them to you. If you want to join us in growing a little lavender of your own, you’ll want to start with these locally grown, hardy plants in three varieties. We have gallon-sized Provence, Hidcote, and Phenomenal plants available.
Provence is a hybrid variety know as French lavender. Its stems are long and good for dried and fresh bouquets and even culinary purposes. Hidcote is an English Lavender that is great for landscaping. These plants are hardy and tend to stay smaller in size so they work well as ornamental plants in your flower beds. Phenomenal is also a hybrid variety that is considered very hardy and does well through tough winters and hot summers. Its blooms are good for just about anything.
Email us at email@example.com with your order and we will happily deliver to Treasure Valley locations. We are charging $13 a plant if you contact us soon. The cost at the Farmers’ Market will be $15 a plant, so hurry to get your preferred variety and quantity!
If you don’t have room in your garden at the moment, we also have a few small potted Munstead ready for your kitchen window. Munstead is a popular English lavender variety that does well in containers. We are selling these for $6 at the Farmers’ Market.
Care for your lavender by keeping it well watered after transplanting to help it adjust then only occasional watering once it is established. Lavender is drought resistant and prefers watering directly on the roots instead of sprinkling to avoid root rot. All in all, lavender is one of the easiest plants to grow. It looks beautiful, smells great, and attracts pollinators to keep all your plants happy.
Have you tried a Brittanna product yet? Even in just our first line of bath and body products we have something for everyone. After all, everybody bathes. Or at least they should. However you bathe, it’s better with a Brittanna product—scrubs for the shower; bombs, tea, and salts for the tub; body butter anytime.
Just as lavender isn’t just for grandmas and it isn’t just for girls either. Men can love lavender too. In fact, we have used our husbands as our male product testers—one willingly, the other less so. One husband is an enthusiastic lover of a good lavender infused bath at the end of a hard day. The other had to be convinced to give a sugar scrub cube a try, but now sneaks them out of the drawer. So whether the guy in your life is unabashedly in touch with his feminine side or prefers to keep it on the down low, he needs a little lavender in his life. We recommend the lavender eucalyptus scent for guys.
If you want to try a eucalyptus lavender bath salt, sugar scrub, or body butter for you or a guy in your life (dads like lavender too and so do my 4 and 7-year-old boys!), you are in luck. All eucalyptus products are $2 off in the month of July!
We won’t be at the Market this holiday weekend, but there are plenty of other opportunities to get your hands on some sale items. If you have a midweek, empty scrub tub crisis, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly deliver orders over $20 to Treasure Valley locations.
Well … perhaps not. But it was exciting to harvest something from the new lavender beds if only a handful of flowers pruned to encourage the plants to focus on establishing roots. Even this small reward is encouraging to us first-time farmers. It is exciting to see the new lavender beginning to thrive and for us to go from gardeners to farmers—to see an empty lot begin to become a productive field.
In the meantime, we are having fun selling our first line of products at the Nampa Farmers’ Market and thinking up new ways to use this awesome plant. Soon to come will be a lavender linen spray and a peppermint lavender foot scrub.
In addition to weeding and pruning and whispering sweet nothings to our little lavender plants, we’ve been tasting all things lavender to work on a line of culinary products. If you haven’t noticed, lavender food is all the rage. We’ll be sharing some of the fun items we’ve found in our neighborhood and throughout the Northwest on our Facebook page and sharing some of the culinary products we’ve been working on at the Market soon!
