I bought a lavender plant about 3 months ago. It’s doing well, vining everywhere like crazy, but I can’t figure out at what stage to harvest it.
I did a search and browsed around a few sites, which suggested to harvest when the blooms are fully open and fragrant. The thing is, mine has no blooms at all…it’s just green vines everywhere. Shouldn’t it have flowered by now? The sites I looked at showed the plants with purple blooms. I don’t even see any buds on mine.
I have noticed that the vines themselves are definitely fragrant, which confuses me further. I thought only the flowers would be fragrant.
Any lavender veterans know what’s up?
Here’s a pic of my plant. I draped some of the vines over a book so they can be seen more clearly: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v654/MachTurtle/Lavender.jpg
