Can my wheelchair get down the rows?

The field is accessible by wheelchair however it is a working farm where tractors and heavy machinery pass over all the land, therefore it is a little bumpy!

Can I pick lavender in all the fields?
The largest main plot you can pick both varieties of lavender. The new smaller plot nearest the parking is a non picking plot.

 

Why can't we pick the small plot of lavender?
This plot is not yet mature enough to be picked. It will be used to harvest for essential oil and stock our giftshop.

Are both varieties of lavender in bloom at the same time?
One half of the field (‘Hidcote’ English lavender) begins to flower first with a cross over period with both in bloom usually late July. There will always be one variety in full bloom during the opening period.
