How to store and dry lavender #lavenderfreakweek
How to dry out your lavender? Take small bunch of 10 to 12 lavender stems and tie with a string. Hang your bunch of lavender in a cool and dry area with plenty of air circulation. See my YouTube video below for more direction.
When to jar your lavender? In two to three weeks, check on your drying lavender buds. The tie around your lavender should be loose and perhaps a few lavender buds have fallen to the ground. I do the "snap test" to ensure my lavender is dry enough for transplant into a container. I take a lavender stem and break off the lavender bud. If it "snaps" then your lavender bunch is ready for the jar. If not, just leave your lavender bunch hanging and reassess in another week or so.
What to store your lavender in? You know, I am a sucker for tiny Spanish glass jars. I like tiny jars, because if somehow a lavender bud did not properly it can produce mold. A tiny jar means only a few lavender buds got ruined and not your entire Summer crop. All glass container is best. I enjoy pretty corked glass jars, but your standard Ball Jars will do just fine as well.
