Catherine Pedricks is cultivating long stemmed English Lavender on the central California coast so she can use the long stems to make lavender wands. The lavender flowers fall off of the stems when they become dry, so this can only be done when the lavender is fresh and the stems are still pliable in the summers. Loose lavender in the fall is used to make sock dolls stuffed with lavender.
You can see more of my wands and dolls by clicking on the Pedricks pages above, or use this link to my Etsy store: Pedricks
