Yes, we’re still open! Our Grosso and Maillette varieties flower later than many garden varieties and there are still another couple of weeks left for to visit our lavender fields. For those of you who can’t make the journey you can still order Hitchin Lavender products from our products page. The reaction to the Daily Mail article has been fantastic and many thanks to all of you who have travelled to Hitchin for a day out.
We’d love to hear your comments about the fields and see your pictures so please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or click the comments button beneath this paragraph. Hope to see you in the next couple of weeks.

Listen in this afternoon from 2.15pm on BBC three Counies radio and you will hear Nick, Tim and Steve talking to Tim Wheeler as he wanders with us through the Lavender fields! http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/bbc_three_counties_radio/
Now really is the perfect time to come and see Hitchin's Lavender fields in full bloom!
Lots of you have been to see us already this year but time is running out - harvesting of the lavender is edging closer!
Last week Hitchin Lavender was mentioned in an article in the Daily Telegraph http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/5767935/Lavender-resurgence-as-people-turn-to-natural-remedies.html we are hoping for lots more media attention as the fields become ever fuller

The village had a gardens open day on sunday and we at Hitchin Lavender were thrilled to be a part of it as well. Apart from the day being wondeful, visitors to the farm were also fortunate enough to see an amazing teepee which had been used for a stunning wedding the night before. It was situated at the base of the large field of lavender providing a beautiful backdrop and a highly original wedding venue!
