Culinary Lavender -SD

Anyone know where you can get lavender in San Diego? Need it for some cookies we're making this weekend...

Thanks in advance.

  1. there's a lavender farm in Escondido. check their website for locations where you can buy their products:

    or contact one of the local culinary supply stores or cooking schools (maybe Great News or Sur La Table) and ask if they know of a source.

    1. It grows wild in many parts of the county, and is also very common as a landscape plant. One of your neighbors probably has some in his yard. It's also available dried at better grocery stores. If I recall correctly, I've seen it (dried) at Whole Foods and Jimbo's.

            Walter Anderson Nursery had some culinary lavender just last week I seem to recall. Huge plant for $5.99 or abouts...
