Products / How to purchase

Due to the winters of  2009, 2013/14, the likes of which we have not seen in Western Montana in over a decade, my original sharecrop (established in 2001) at Ten Spoon Winery has suffered serious winter kill. But not before I had plenty of time to make clones of the survivors. A whole new plantation is underway – and doing marvelously. Operations are now moved to my own land in the south Mission Valley near St. Ignatius.

2016 proved to be my come-back year. I’m excited to say I have stacks of boxes full of dried lavender once again. There may be enough to make product until the 2017 crop comes on in June. Because of the intense winters of the last few years some stock is available but may be limited quantities.

My new website is under development and will include a shopping cart with automated payment options. Along with my line of lavender products will be options to purchase a subscription to my newsletter Earth Nurture, and copies of my book(s).

For now, if you see something you like in my list of products don’t hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to fill your order. In the meantime, I am grateful for your continued support, encouragement, and patience in my reinvention.

I have diversified and now offer English as well as French lavender, Springtime fresh cut Daffodils, early and late Tulips, Dutch Iris, Drumstick allium, Peony flowers, Colchicum bulbs in August, as well as a plethora of wildcrafted herbs and medicinals.

Book

I have been diligently revising the final edits on my first book Lavender Farming; Secrets from a Hard Row Hoed. It is about my experience the last 16 years and can be used as a template for starting your own lavender farm or just growing a few plants in your garden.  On publication (planned for early Spring 2017) book signings have already been arranged at Meadowsweet Herbs, Marchies Nursery, and Montgomery Distillers in Missoula, MT. and Back of Beyond Books in Moab, Utah. Of course I welcome pre-release sales ($45) and will ship (free) a signed copy to you once it is printed.

Consult

I am available to consult with you about planting lavender in your garden or a farm of your own. My fee has evolved over the years and currently is: $10 per question or $200 per hour, where I answer your questions and those you wouldn’t think to ask, help you formulate a plan, advise you on how not to lose the whole farm to one global warming event, and set you up for success.

I can also consult you on landscape design. I am not a landscape architect, rather work with you on do-it-yourself or can leave you with a design any contractor can follow. I am a proponent of low maintenance and the xeric style. Reference my 2004 design/installation at Good Food Store in Missoula for ideas.

  2. I usually do not leave a response, however after reading through a great
    deal of comments on this page Products / How to purchase | Lavender Lori
    Parr. I do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay.
    Could it be simply me or does it appear like a few of the comments look like they are left by brain
    dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I’d
    like to keep up with anything new you have to post.

    Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your public
    sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
