My six lavender plants now have their wool blankets on for the winter. It's a great way to use the yucky wool that I don't use for anything else. It's the belly and leg wool that is too short or other wool that may have too much VM or manure tags. It will protect the base of the plants against the winter winds and keep them warm and cozy until spring.
