Thanks for 2011!

Ok so there's still technically one more day after today (but i'm not coming in tomorrow!) but thanks to everyone for a fantastic 2011 and we all look forward to a great New year here on the farm.

We've just got back from our holidaying and it's not even freezing... which is really good for us and even better news for all our plugs - which are looking great!

Many thanks again from all

Christmas in Argentina!

Hello to everybody suffering the cold climate in the UK.. Some of Hitchin Lavender have been spending the past month in glorious (and rather sunny) Argentina

A Big thanks to the rest of the family who have been working so hard on markets, sales, tweets and other things - whilst we've been working hard as well, on primarily... our tans!

Taking lazy walks around Noel's home town of Carmen de Areco we have come across much lavender (see photo) although not common in the UK - Canariensis and Dentata species and there subsequent sub-species varieties are commonplace in warmer climates. They can live in the UK but become indoor/conservatory plants as these aren't fully hardy plants. If you like what you see then you'll be pleased to know that we will be selling similar varieties next year so watch this space! With currently 55 varieties growing in our poly tunnel (need more space!) we should have plenty to display and sell

Best wishes from all in Argentina!!! xxx
