When do You Pick Lavender?

Answer

The scent of lavender wafting through your home is so soothing. You will want to pick lavender early in the morning so that the essential oils remain in the flowers. If you wait until later in the day, the heat will dry them out and the scent will not be as pronounced. For prime picking, cut the stems that still have a few flowers unopened. Again, more of the essential oils remain in these stems.
