Sunflowers ready to pick at Hitchin Lavender!!!

Lots of publicity recently for which all of us at Hitchin Lavender are extremely grateful for. You may have spotted the delightful Clare Nasri in our lavender fields last week presenting the weather reports for GMTV. Maria Noel is also looking just as lovely in The Daily Telegraph today surrounded by our blooming Sunflowers! So Many thanks to Clare and the GMTV team who came here and also loads of thanks to Jo Riley who got us in The Telegraph and to Geoff Robinson who took that stunning photo of my wife!

The lavender is still very much in full flower here in Hitchin so make a day of it and come and pick yourselves some Lavender and some Sunflowers!!!

Hitchin Lavender Sunflowers and Lavender in full bloom now!

These photos of Hitchin Lavender were taken this morning!

Due to the very dry and sunny summer our sunflowers are out already and are looking stunning next to the lavender rows which are still in full bloom.

Come along and visit when you can - we are predicting at least a couple of weeks that the two flowers will be out at the same so why not come and pick your own!!! Its £3 entrance for Adults and £2 for kids which also allows you to pick your own shopping size bag of lavender and a further £3 if you wish to pick your own sunflowers!!! A great family day out!!!

Full Bloom at Hitchin Lavender!

For those of you who want to view some glorious lavender fields and not want to have to travel to Provence to view them - then why not come to us! We are just a short trip out from London and we invite all our visitors to not only enter the field but also to go where they like and pick as well! We have many different types of English lavender as well as Intermedias and French as well.

This is what it looked liked earlier today - as you can see all the crop is now out and the sunflowers are now only a few weeks away as well.
