Have you read the CSU Extension fact sheet “Growing Lavender in Colorado”? It was published by Dr. Curtis Swift and myself a few years back as our local lavender industry was starting up. We cover all of the basics including proper planting methods, irrigation concerns and the best varieties for our high desert climate.
If you are considering growing lavender in your landscape or as a commercial crop, I would highly recommend reading this fact sheet first. If you want more information, you are always welcome to attend the Lavender Association of Western Colorado’s monthly members meetings.
