“I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.” —Alice Walker

The Lavender Lover's Handbook provides a complete checklist of the color, fragrance, size, and foliage of the 100 easiest, most stunning lavenders available today. In addition to details about spacing, planting, pruning, Sarah Berringer Bader offers tips to harvest, cook, and craft with this wonderful herb. The abundant variety, hardiness, fragrance, and culinary opportunities make lavender one of the most popular and versatile plants, and with this practical and accessible guide, it's easier than ever to grow lush lavender at home.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 16, 2012 – Bader's encyclopedic encomium to varieties of, and uses for, lavender is missing the fragrance of the plant, but little else. Almost 200 color photos make the case that 100 varieties of lavender or some fraction thereof are worth drying, drinking, and dreaming about. Bader explains lavender's characteristics and differences among species in helpful details; there's even a color photo guide to help lavender aficionados parse their purples and violets. Chapters offer recipes and crafts guides; beyond sachets, try lavender syrup or truffles. Lavender can be added to a home-crafted cleaning solution because it has antimicrobial properties. Not everyone can grow every lavender. Gardeners in temperate climates can't use certain species, but every gardener can have a gorgeous scented field of the color purple if they pick the right lavender variety and prune it as it matures. This useful book will suit both novice and experienced gardeners. 190 color photos.
