Lavender is used as an herb and in making sachets, oils and soaps.
Not all varieties of lavender are "lavender." Some are white, green or pink.
Though beneficial bugs like honeybees and ladybugs love lavender, traditional pests tend to stay away from it. Deer, rabbits and slugs typically won't eat lavender.
