Diary Dates


June

Lavender Festival

The festival runs throughout June and is dedicated to (you guessed it!) all things Lavender!  10% of all Lavender plant sales go to the Lavender Trust and we donate a portion of lavender food sales to the trust as well.  In 2016, we saw the introduction of the ‘Lavender Cream Tea’, the Wishing Tree, raffles, lavender demonstrations and more besides.  Watch this space for upcoming news for the 2017 festival.









July

The Schools in Bloom competition winners are announced. Every year, schools from the local district are invited to take part in the competition, which involves growing a variety of plug plants provided by us in their school grounds.
