Lavender in Pots, Not Provence

Usually when I think of growing lavender, I picture it growing wild and free, or in contained beds along a garden path.

But the Barefoot Contessa grows it in huge pots that sit in the sun and greet people as they arrive at her garden gate.

She writes, "The good news is, lavender’s natural habitat is the hot, sandy soil of Provence- so if I forget to water my plants, they’re even happier! If you don’t have room for a garden, maybe you can find a little space for a pot of lavender near your front door. Every time you brush by it, you’ll have the fabulous scent of Provence in the air."

A great project for a sunny summer afternoon!
