From a challenge that lavender wouldn’t grow in Oklahoma soil has bloomed a business that has kept Jag Sodhi busy in his retirement. While Sodhi was a professor for the Department of Defense at Defense Acquisition University, a student gave him a lavender plant as a gift and he took the challenge of growing lavender on his acreage near Apache, 75 miles southwest of Oklahoma City.
