The secrets to growing your own fragrant lavender field are sun and good drainage. Read Lavender: The Grower's Guide by Virginia McNaughton (Timber Press, $29.95) to learn how to care for this tough, but particular Mediterranean herb. Pruning most types of lavender is essential for maintaining an attractive, long-lived plant, but don't cut into old wood or your plant may not re-sprout.

For a complete lavender sensory experience visit the annual Lavender Festival in Sequim, WA.
