Lamenting a wet fall, winter and the soggy spring we’ve endured in Central New York, the owners of the Lockwood Lavender Farm announced on the company’s website it won’t open this season.
“Farming is never easy at the best of times,” the owners wrote online. Many of the plants appear damaged, the owners say.
Lavender is a plant that thrives in a well-drained soil and suffer in wet conditions, the owners point out.
“We will truly miss our contact with our loyal customer base and new visitor friendships not yet cultivated. Our decision not to be open this year was not an easy one to make,” the owners wrote.
