What will you see?  Well in my last experience, I took a tractor tour around the fields, wandered through the rows of lavender taking pictures and partook of a particularly fine afternoon tea!  I even came home with some lavender which is still valliantly struggling to survive at my home.

This year, there will be craft stalls and chocolate making demonstrations too.  The adjoining shops are good value for plants and products made from … wait for it … lavender!  Try the lavender fudge … it’s … interesting.
