Lansing, Mich. (WLNS) – People have come to know lavender in its many forms. Cookies, eye pillows, essential oil, lotions, and soaps are just a small sample of what lavender can grow into. The growing process, like any plant, is vulnerable to the weather.
Michigan provides a climate that supports growing lavender, but the weather does not only factor in during the spring and summer seasons. Michigan’s ever-changing weather can provide perks and challenges to lavender growers all year long.
