There are two five acre fields of lavender and both are grown for lavender essential oil and dried lavender flowers. The first field is planted only with English Angustifolia lavender that flowers in June and July, the second has a mixture of English lavender and hybrid intermedia lavender that flowering later. Therefore the second field flowers during July and August.
Visitors can wander round the lavender fields and enjoy the sight and smell of thousands of lavender plants.
This area has packed full of different varieties of lavender plants so that visitors can see the different colours and habits of over 20 different varieties of lavender. The rose arbour at the end of the lavender garden is a tranquil shady spot.
Herbs that help us in one way or another, from the ordinary Thyme and Mint to the more unusual Arnica and Echinacea. Rest a while on the Camomile seat and take in the wonderful scent.
