Open Farm Days, Coming Soon!

Sunday, June 11, 2017

You've inquired. We've finalized. The plants are getting energized. See you in July!

 

A lavender solution to rainy days

Monday, May 01, 2017

After a relatively mild winter, the lavender plants have been uncovered and are greening nicely. Now is the time to lightly brush your plants and help remove any dead foliage. The remaining leaves will begin to green when the sun finally shines! The forecast calls for rain, rain and more rain, dimming the liklihood of any field work in early May. We are eager to finish a new field for Buena Vista, an electric blue English lavender with long, vigorous stems and anticipate planting later in the month. 

In the meantime, we're stocked for summer and are happy to introduce our travel candle in rosemary & lavender, rose geranium & lavender, and lemon verbena & lavender. If your summer calls for travel, or if the rain has your nose wishing for some natural, sweet scents, our travel candles will fit the bill nicely. We're offering a special on our online store. It's 10-percent off and free shipping for the next two weeks. Just type MAYDAY in the box for discount codes in the online shopping cart.

Happy May! Bloom is not far away now!

The bloom has begun!

Thursday, June 23, 2016
We are seeing electric blues and deep purples forming on the English lavender varieties and we are open for visitors to the farm at 151 Searsmont Road, Appleton, 10-3 daily until July 17. Please, no dogs on the grounds -- the chickens would protest!

Greener By the Minute and Farm Days

Sunday, June 05, 2016

We grow greener by the day and soon the lavender buds will form. We're preparing for our farm days, so soon you can photograph and sniff and picnic by the blooms. We can give you ample advice and demonstrations so you can grow the varieties we enjoy at Glendarragh. We will host open farm days June 18 - July 17, 10 to 3, daily. The blooms will begin to set in late June and color arrives in July. Please refrain from bringing dogs, which aggravate the chickens and can be problematic in the fields. See you soon.
