Dear Friends,

The Lavender Hill Shop begins SUMMER HOURS this week:  From June 1st through the end of August, we will be open Monday thru Saturday 10 am to 4 pm

Plant Sales:

Lavender plant sales continue! All plants are propagated from our field plants and grown in our farm greenhouse. They are available in 3.5 inch square pots for $6.50 ea.  The following varieties are available while supplies last:

English Lavender varieties: The English Lavenders have shorter flower stems (generally 8 to 12 in.) and start blooming in mid to late June.  They have a sweeter, more floral scent than the hybrid types. 'Folgate' has bright periwinkle flowers, and 'Royal Velvet' has dark purple bud color, great for drying on the stem. Both of these varieties are great for culinary use.

Hybrid lavandin varieties: These varieties are July bloomers with longer flower stems (15 to 24 in. or more) and stronger scents. 'Grosso' has a medium purple flower color, 'Super' has pale lavender flower color, and 'Gros Bleu' has a dark purple flower color.

THE LAVENDER HILL SHOP:

The shop is fully stocked with all our lavender products plus lots of gift bag sets ready for gifting, or splurging on yourself or a friend.  Our gift bags are a great value too, as the products in them are discounted!

U-PICK LAVENDER SCHEDULE:

The 2017 U-Pick lavender season is scheduled to start Monday June 26th during our regular shop open hours.  The season goes as long as there are blooms to pick (usually through late July).  During this time, for the cost of $5 a bunch, you are allowed to cut your own lavender bunches in designated areas using our scissors.  A bunch is measured by the amount you can fasten in the twist-tie we provide.  Because we have 8 different lavender varieties that do not all bloom at the same time, we designate which areas to pick based upon availability and readiness. We also reserve certain areas for our own production needs.

PHOTOGRAPHY & PAINTING:

Customers are welcome to bring their cameras and canvases with them and take pictures or paint in the field during our regular open hours. We just ask that you credit our farm, and location, when sharing or posting online or publishing any photo or painting of our farm and that you be respectful of our other customers, and of our property and privacy. Our mission is to provide quality products and experiences to all of our customers.

Thanks so much for your patronage!

Martha
