Sooke Organic Lavender was founded by Jeff and Shelly Davis in 2018. Through a combination of hard work and visions of a productive future for ourselves, our children and grandchildren, as well as the wildlife that dwells hand in hand with us, we strive to produce the very best lavender available while at the same time improving the soil that it is grown in. Only organic methods are employed and each plant is carefully tended and harvested by hand at the perfect time in order to capture it's desired qualities. Did you know that lavender harvested for dried flower bunches is cut at a different time of maturity than lavender that is harvested for it's oil?
2019 saw our first tiny plants go into the ground and the following summer we had our first harvest. The happy plants bloomed prolifically twice! And bees of all sorts, from the local bumble bees to our own honey bees absolutely loved the lavender and we often found them sleeping overnight right in the plants.... so heartwarming!
It has been a whirlwind of planning and landscape development and we are looking forward to a bright and fragrant future!
Good for the earth...Good for the body! The beauty of the location is what inspired us to protect and improve it. Flanked by year round creeks and ponds plus a major river on our east, we sit on a natural plateau. When we built here in 2011, the land had been stripped of all it's trees and soil. As an ancient river bed, we faced a moonscape of rocks and debris with no soil or vegetation.... but those views!...
We laboured to compost and build naturally to what it is today. Our goal is to enhance the environment and share the products and lifeforce of this natural bounty through thoughtful planting, sustainable practices and habitat conservation.
Teeming with life and vitality! You need great raw materials to have a great finished product. Each lavender variety was cloned from pristine locally sourced stock. A microcosm of energetic life can now be found everywhere in our soil and landscape.
Angustifolias are the traditional English garden lavender varieties. They have narrow leaves, shorter stems with flower heads that are barrel shaped as opposed to spiky. Their fragrance is sweeter than their hybrid cousins the Lavandins (French), and because of this, their oil is coveted for aromatherapy and perfume. They bloom earlier in the year than the Lavandins. Their dried blossoms are used in cooking, crafting and cosmetics. The Angustifolias produce seeds that are viable, and young plants will often appear below the parent plant.
Lavendula x Intermedia
Also called Lavendin is a hybrid cross between angustifolia (English) lavender and Portuguese latifolia (Spike) Lavender. Spike lavender is referred to as French lavender since France is the largest producer. This is the primary difference between (French) Lavandin and (English) Lavender, along with flower shape. French are pointy spike shaped heads as opposed to barrel shaped and slightly less hardy than English, but are taller and produce more flower spikes. It has similar properties to English lavender but is less sweet and more camphorous.
