How do growers get the rows mounded in the attached picture?

When you post images to NGA it is a good idea to get permission from the person who owns the copyright of the image. In this case it would appear to be Aliexpress...

Those appear to be lavender plants.

Edited to add:
You can do a Google Image search using the keywords 'lavender fields in France' and see several more examples of lavender growing in neat rows.

Yes, I'd bet they're pruned every year by a machine, when they harvest the flowers.

The tool is called a row hiller. If you google for that you'll see what the tractor attachment looks like.

I have to say that, as a joke, I used that exact same picture as "Amazing Purple Catnip" on my cat blog for a 10th birthday party. "No harm, no foul"...

And I'll do that sort of thing again, Bwa-Ha-Ha.

Ease up a bit.

@greene is right. Copyright does apply to photos and it is polite to request to use somebody else's photo. I must take issue with your reasoning (i.e. "No harm, no foul") @Yardenman, since if you take it to its logic conclusion, it gets ugly.

If you're going to use somebody else's image without asking, at least have the decency to cite it.

Ok, so I cannot find where to delete the image from the thread. The message was received loud and clear, and I received an answer to my question. Let's move on, please.

Hi @abw82667,

Sorry, my rant was not directed at you (rather at the other members' attitude over image theft). I've removed the photo for you and replaced it with a link to what is hopefully the original source so that future readers can see where it came from.
