Lavender belongs to the Lamiaceae family. There are about thirty species originating from Mediterranean countries. The hybrids, called “Lavandin”, produce larger plants with more flowers. They are cultivated more frequently than true lavender because they have greater yields in essential oils. The most commonly used hybrid is a cross between Angustifolia and Latifolia and is known as Lavandula Intermedia.

Lavender adapts well to different pedoclimatic conditions. Demand is increasing all over the world from various industry sectors, including pharmaceutical, cosmetic, herbalist, food, and liquor.
Lavender easily tolerates both hot and cold climates but prefers areas with sun exposure. It can even be grown on hills up to an altitude of 1000/1200 metres.

Type of soil

Lavender requires a limited amount of irrigation and does not require particularly fertile or acidic soil. Clay soil is preferable but lavender adapts well even to alkaline soil as long as it is well-draining, as it does not tolerate standing water.

Lavender production

Lavender propagates well from cuttings. Intensive farming systems must be created using select, certified seedlings.
The type of lavender to grow must be chosen based on the altitude, soil, and type of production desired.
The highly profitable, prized Lavandula Officinalis is cultivated on hills, while cultivating more productive hybrids such as Lavandin is more advantageous below 6-700 metres.


Cultivating lavender is highly profitable yet proportional to the farmer’s technical skills and knowledge, to the quality and performance of the harvesting machinery, as well as to how it is processed after being harvested.
