Love up on Lavender on Garden Tour

Get a touch of Provence in Central Iowa at Iowa Lavender outside of Ames. The family farm is part of the Altrusa 2022 spring garden tour June 11. Photo: Courtesy of Iowa Lavender.

Located southeast of Ames, Iowa Lavender has created a success with the aromatic herb. The business, owned by Jason and Jessica Mortvedt, sells hardy varieties of the plant as well as bath salts, balms, salves, essential oils and more. You’ll find the perfect gifts for your bestie (or yourself).

Tour the garden this Saturday as part of the Altrusa of Ames Spring Garden Tour, and pick up plants and goodies for at-home spa time. The farm, which started in 2020, will offer a “you-pick” option later in the season and also frequents the Ames farmers market. Find product and farm information here or on their Facebook page.
