Our First Harvest


One thing we did do when we got our allotment is plant lavender bushes. There are good reasons for this, and there are many tricks allotmenteers use to outwit pests - lavender and rosemary (and marigold!) are some of them. But apart from discouraging unwanted attention from pests, they are a boon for bees, and for us too! Lavender is the oldest known cure for a sleepless night



This year is the first year that the harvest of lavender was larger than our own needs, and as we picked we discussed what we could do with all this extra crop.

Well, this was the outcome - lavender sachets for sale - for you! Organically grown and proudly picked by my would-be farmers.

You can find them here in our store.
