We hope you are enjoying this beautiful spring. LAVENDER SENSE is now open for the 2012 season and we look forward to seeing you again or perhaps for the very first time. Either way, we will make every effort to make your experience fun, interesting and positively memorable.
Last season our lavender was thriving and with the mild winter and our wish for a long warm summer, the plants will continue to flourish and hopefully provide an abundant harvest, once again. By end June the sweet-smelling floral scents will fill the air to the benefit of our daily visitors, retreat guests and our neighbours. Pick-your-own lavender will be available again this season and will usually start in late June or early July.
As always, we invite you to visit us - to enjoy the lavender field, the grounds, the forest and to browse the Boutique. We have many new lavender products for your well-being and enjoyment.
We are open:
Outside our regular hours, visits may be scheduled by appointment – just call 519 762 2188 to arrange for a mutually convenient time. The Bed & Breakfast Retreat is available year round by reservation.
And remember to check out our ‘Activities & Events’.
The LAVENDER SENSE Newsletter is to inform, inspire, educate and entertain. We hope it meets your expectations. We welcome your thoughts and ideas as we aim to make this the best lavender newsletter ever.
