  • Mid July –  French Lavender is in full bloom. U-Cut Lavender Available
  • Mid August – By now most of the lavender is harvested but you will see our century old barn filled with lavender drying.  It is quite a sight to see even if you missed the blooms.  Possible U-Cut Lavender Available.

So.....When is the best time to visit Sequim Lavender Farms to see Lavender?

We receive daily phone calls.  90% of those calls are to ask if the lavender is in bloom or when is the best time to visit sequim lavender farms?   

The first thing to know is all of Sequim’s lavender farms grow multiple varieties of lavender.  Therefore there will never be a time to visit when all the fields are in bloom.   Instead, each farm has different sections of their farm that bloom at different times.  

English Lavenders bloom first.  There are almost 100 cultivars in this species, Lavandula Angustifolia.  The earliest blooming varieties typically start to bloom in mid June.  In fact,  June 2 of 2021, Folgate was  already starting to  turn purple.

To recap.  You will start seeing lavender in Sequim in mid June at most farms.

How Long do the Lavender Blooms Last?

After Folgate, an English Lavender, starts to bloom it is quickly followed by many different varieties of English lavender.   The English lavenders will be in bloom until late July.  During this time the Lavandin (Lavandula X Intermdedia) or French Lavenders begin to bloom.  The French lavenders start to bloom in mid July and will continue until late-August most years.

So mid June until late August you have Lavender. But, When is the best time to see Lavender in Sequim?

In my humble opinion there is not a bad time to visit the farms during the season.  However, my favorite time is early July or very late in June.  At these time you will see the English lavenders at their peak and the French lavenders starting to turn colors.

B&B Family Farm was definitely well worth the visit! The family was friendly and helpful, and the farm is well kept with orderly rows of luscious lavender well labeled for visitors unfamiliar with the nuances of the plant. The complimentary tour was fascinating and informational, describing the inner workings of the farm and lavender processing in just the right amount of detail.

B&B Family Farm is a must see! If you want only quality lavender products and the opportunity for truly a great education in lavender production Bruce and Bonnie's farm are worth the drive out from Sequim. Bonnie was even happy to answer questions about my home lavender plant growing issues to improve my plants production

Cute little farm and really nice people. We came about 20 minutes before closing and they offered us a tour and told us to stay as long as we wanted, which was really nice. It was also really interesting to learn about how the lavender was harvested and processed. Nice little gift shop too, we bought our 10 year old some stinky feet cream that is already being put to good use and so far he loves it and we are very happy with the smell haha. Definitely worth the stop. My husband was not very interested in going to a lavender farm but then admitted that it was cool to see how it's distilled and harvested. I'd go back again for sure.

I absolutely love all the things I ordered from you. Soap, sachets and most of all my pillow insert. It has such an amazing calming scent and I sleep like a baby. I have a sachet on each side of my California King bed too so my bedroom is a sanctuary of lavender. Thank you I hope to order some more stuff soon and hope one day to visit the farm.

Great experience here! We were able to go inside the old barn where they had the recent, QUITE LARGE, harvest hanging to dry. They were also distilling in the barn, so the smell between the the two was amazing. He gave us a great description of their process that was very informative. Their copper still and vintage sifter are really cool. The quality of their oils are top notch.

This was THE best lavender farm I saw on the tour last weekend in Sequim. I talked to the owner telling him how much it impressed me. HUGE daisies, and so many lovely flowers, it is like an arboretum of differing blooming beauties! WOWZERS! The work it must take for upkeep is quite extensive and upkeep they do, it is wonderful!

B&B was BEAUTIFUL! We came here to choose our wedding flowers and were able to pick fresh lavender with our entire family. It was beyond special. B&B staff were friendly and so very helpful. I cannot wait to someday return to Washington and to stop by B&B to restock on their Incredible lavender products. It was glorious to open my suitcase to the sweet smell. Thanks again for everything!!

I haven’t been to all the Lavender farms in Sequim but this was the only farm that offered to give me a tour on the spot. It was interesting to see how they process the lavender. They are very LGBT friendly too! I had been looking for gift baskets for neighbors and their gift shop was the only one I saw that had pre-made baskets for Him, Her and Family. I would highly recommend this farm.

We learned so much today from both Bruce and Zion! What an amazing farm! Thank you so much for letting us check it out. With all the pictures and stories on Facebook, I felt like I knew everyone already, which made it so much more fun.

wow. what great service and free tour they provided with reasonable priced gifts! came here because it was on our to-do list while touring around the olympic peninsula. the store was quaint and filled head to toe in lavender. the lavender field was empty because the season passed but inside the barn was endless rows of lavender ready to be processed and shipped out (which was pretty cool). the owners of the store shows you step by step what they do there on the farm which was cool , especially since it was only our group and one couple. the owner explains everything and the difference between the lavenders which was nice. the store itself has lavender everything for really cheap prices which was an added bonus. highly recommend this place if you're in the area!! it won't disappoint!
