The purple flowers of lavender give the herb bed an unmistakable splash of color and its wonderful scent enchants everyone’s senses. Lavender is an integral part of French cuisine and can be found in every herb-of-Provence mixture. Because of its particularly intense aroma, it is advisable to dose lavender very sparingly. The herb is good for flavoring meat dishes, but also desserts, jams and drinks get a unique touch with a touch of lavender. The flowers can also be used for salads and dips.
