Pollowing lavender obeys precise climatic rules. It depends on the hygrometry, that is to say on the humidity of the air. Clearly, a long period without rain can advance the harvest of a few days, while a thunderstorm can delay it by the same amount. Do not hesitate to inquire at the tourist offices of the areas you wish to visit.
The lavender flowering period extends from mid-June to the end of August.
It varies according to the varieties of lavender, the climate, altitude and latitude. Local weather is also a determining factor for picking.
