Caption: Lavandin, lavandula x intermedia, is an important crop in parts of Provence and the nursery provides replacement plants for the farms. A sterile hybrid, much more robust than lavender, it has to be cultured from cuttings, clones of a parent with good characteristics. Fields are replanted every 11 years or so and the first full harvest of the young plants will be 3 years after planting out. The yield is 1 litre per 50 to 250 kilos of cuttings but Lavandin can produce up to a 7 times greater yield than lavender. The essential oil will be added to products like cosmetics, washing powder, candles, soap, and various cleaners. Provence, France.
