Many lavender fields are in full bloom in July. So we think it’s the perfect time to share some of our favorite Lavender fields. English Lavender typically blooms first in late spring/early summer. Followed by French Lavender bloom in mid to late summer. Though Provence is home to the most spectacular lavender fields, Bulgaria is the largest lavender producer in the world. But you don’t have to travel to Provence or Bulgaria to experience the pleasure of strolling through a fragrant lavender field.
There are many wonderful lavender farms around the world. This is a useful guide to 22 Gorgeous Lavender Fields around the World. A list of beautiful lavender farms in France, Bulgaria, New Zealand, Hungary, Croatia, Sardinia, England, Tasmania Transylvania, Poland, Japan and North America.
And, of course, we always love to leave with armloads of dried lavender, plants, oils, and bath & body products. Many farms also offer treats like lavender lemonade and our favorite, lavender honey. There are lots of lavender fields across the U.S.A., discover some of our favorites here & here.
