While surfing the web a long time ago i came across a tip from someone (I'm sorry for the life of me I don't know who) to plant lavender under your clothesline. Apparently its supposed to gently scent the clothes. What a neat idea, so neat I remembered even though we did not have a clothes line. Now that we have an umbrella dryer i could not wait to try to out. When hubby installed the dryer he used a LOT of cement to keep the dryer stable. There was not enough room underneath the dryer to plant the lavender without the plant being stepped on. I planted $10 worth of Lavender (gift card from my mom for my birthday) in a rather ugly but quite functional pot, using up the last of our organic soil in the process. $0 out of pocket, for a small pretty I enjoy looking at every time I walk out back.
So far it does not scent the clothes. I gently brush against the plant when I walk outside to release the scent. Soothing aroma therapy in the great outdoors while doing a simple soothing activity such as hanging laundry? Talk about stress relief!
