Are you open year-round?
We are open year round, please call for hours.
When does the lavender bloom?
We grow different varieties of lavender that bloom at slightly different times during the month of June through mid-July. The peak of the blooming season is the third and fourth week of June.
Do you sell lavender plants?
Yes, we have plants for sale April through June. We sell several varieties of hardy lavenders: Munstead, Hidcote, Grosso and Super Blue. Our plants are in 4” pots which is a great starting size for the garden.
Can you grow lavender indoors?
No, lavender is a sun loving plant that needs 6-8 hours of direct sun daily. Even a sunny window will not provide adequate sunlight for lavender.
Can you grow lavender in a container?
Yes, lavender can grow happily in a container. In addition to full sun, lavender needs well drained soil so it’s important to choose a growing medium that allows for quick drainage. A slow release organic fertilizer would also be good for a pot grown plant.
Is lavender edible?
Yes, all lavenders are edible, but not all lavenders taste good. Some lavenders smell and taste more medicinal due to a high camphor content in the essential oils that those varieties produce. While technically edible, not very palatable. The fresh or dried flower buds of lavender is what is used for culinary purposes, not the essential oil.
Can I bring my dog to the farm?
Yes, we are dog friendly. However, dogs must remain on leash at all times. In addition to our border collie Lily, we have chickens on the property and don’t want an accidental attack.
Do you offer tours?
We do offer group tours of 10 or more people up to 30. Tours must be scheduled in advance. Tours last 60-90 minutes. Topics covered on the tour include:
- Lavender species and cultivars.
- How to plant, prune and harvest lavender.
- How to dry, strip and store lavender buds.
- Lavender essential oil distillation.
- The history of lavender.
- How to use lavender in your everyday life.
Do you charge a fee for tours?
No, we don’t charge a fee for our tours. Most folks spend some time in our gift shop which seems to make it all worthwhile.
Do you rent your property for weddings or parties?
No, we don’t rent the property for weddings or parties. We don’t have the facilities, i.e. restrooms, changing rooms, kitchen, sufficient parking, etc.
There are other wonderful venues in the area for a beautiful Bucks County wedding or event.
Do you offer pick your own lavender?
Yes, weather and season permitting. Pick your own bunches are $8 – $12 each. Please call before coming to check on pick your own offerings.
What else do you grow on your farm?
Just lavender. There are other farms in the area that grow fruits, vegetables,
herbs, annuals, perennials, meats, eggs and milk. We just grow lavender.
My lavender isn’t fragrant, what can I do?
Squeeze it! The essential oil of lavender resides in tiny glands on and within
the fresh and dried plant material. A gentle squeeze of lavender buds either
on the stem or in a sachet (pronounced sashay) will break open these tiny
glands and release the oil within, thereby ‘refreshing’ the scent of lavender
to your bunch or sachet.
