Group Talks for 2018
We are now taking bookings for our popular group talks. 'Lavender, the Forgotten Herb' takes you back through history as to how lavender was used by the Romans when it came to our country and how the herb is used now, plus Carole and Barry's experience of planting a lavender field and on the Mendip Hills. This is a very popular talk for groups and societies with a question and answer session at the end. We bring our mini shop with our lotions, potions and culinary produce. The cost for us to attend your local group is £45. To book a talk call Carole Hamblin on 01934 733939 or email here.
"Thank you Carole for speaking to us tonight, there was a buzz in the room which showed

Organise a summer day out or short break with Lavender & Co in 2018 and go onto to explore the Mendip Way from Uphill to Frome in Somerset, the medieval town of Axbridge, Cheddar's famous Gorge and Caves, the medieval city of Wells, Wookey Hole, the world famous Glastonbury, the beauty of the Somerset Levels and Clarks Village in Street. Our lavender field on the Axbridge by Pass (A371 Cheddar to Wells Road) has the added attraction of some great traditional pubs and restaurants over on the Square in Axbridge. The field will be open and blooming again in the late spring and summer of 2018.
