Linda Pritchard has been in the landscaping/horticulture business for 36 years. After graduating high school, she started her career at a nursery in Montreal.  After four years of helping to manage the nursery, she decided to start her own business. Lavenders Blue Landscaping was created. She moved to BC in 1989 continuing her business and came to live on the island in 1994. In 2017 and 2016 Lavenders Blue Landscaping was one of the top landscape businesses in People’s Choice Award for the Comox Valley Area.
