What is your favorite scent or herb? Leave a comment and share!



We have quite a bit of lavender here in the garden. My wife loves it both for its look and its lovely scent and it grows well in the Mediterranean climate here in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. 

I haven’t purchased lavender plants in years as it is so easy to propagate. Trim a few stems of their lower leaves and place in some potting soil and within a month or so you have new plants ready to pot on or plant out in the garden. 

When I have a chance, I stop by our local @armstronggarden store to see what is in-season, new, and perhaps, on sale. 
Even when I don’t end up buying something, it is a good opportunity to take some photos to share here and on my garden blog, A Gardener’s Notebook.
