Hello Lavender Fans!
Welcome to our first weekly installment of The Lavender Digest! Here we will be giving you our forecast of the coming week, as well as what has been going on at the farm over the last seven days!
Next week… (30/6/2017 – 6/7/2017)
How will the Lavender be looking?
We are very close to being in full bloom. The first seven rows of angustifolia are currently in full bloom, with the main body of the field really beginning to look very purple indeed!
No, not yet. Mid August.
How busy will it be this weekend?
Saturday looks like it will be clear all day, with lots of sun. Sunday, however, will be raining, on and off. So if you are wanting to come this week, then expect some queuing. However, as we are not quite in holiday season, there will definitely be space for you to find a quiet corner to come enjoy the purple.
We have two exciting workshops for you this week.
1st July – Morning Meditation Class with John Harrigan (TICKETS AVAILABLE)
“Enjoy an empowering morning meditation class in the tranquil and beautiful setting of the Lavender Farm. This hour long class will aid you to relax, embrace positivity and reduce stress. A perfect start to the weekend.”
5th July – Photography Workshop with Sharon Cooper (SOLD OUT)
“This hands on photography workshop will be held a purpose built classroom alongside the tranquil and beautiful setting of the Lavender Farm at Hitchin Lavender, Cadwell farm.”

What’s been happening?
We have had a spectacular week!
On Friday night we welcomed the formidable Roadrunner to come play a few funky covers of some classic songs, with Alex Francis as their lead man. They were electric, playing to a sold out audience All Night Long (all night(!)).
Come Saturday, we were ready for another party, getting on down with the Brookfield Band having ourselves a barn dance, followed by some delicious food and drink.
Then on Sunday we opened our gates for Ickleford Open Gardens, letting people have a wander round our fields as part of this longstanding community initiative.
That’s all for this week!
Check back with us on Monday for another post about our all lavender related things, or next Thursday for another update on Hitchin Lavender!
See you soon!
