At the Dorset Lavender Farm Project this month we’ve been doing a stock take of our lavender and reviewing the varieties we have in our barnyard. Once the 480 new plug plants were delivered our volunteers were hard at work selecting pots from storage that were suitable for the plants, and mixing the compost to the right composition for optimum growth.
On the day before Good Friday 18th April we had an Easter Coffee Morning, which our friends, family and supporters were invited to. For a donation we enjoyed refreshments, and books from our book stall were available, as well as lavender bags and honey for sale.
Looking forward, the Dorset Lavender Farm Project will be at the Shillingstone Steam Rally on Saturday and Sunday 18th and 19th of May. We will have lavender plants for sale, as well as lavender bags, wooden crafts such as bird boxes and candle holders and greetings cards featuring scenes from our farm. Also we have some excellent tomato and herb plants grown by Friends of DLFP. Events such as these are also a good opportunity to share and answer questions about the ethos of the Dorset Lavender Farm Project – do join us at the Steam Rally!
