Posted on Thursday, 3 April

One of our favourite recipes is the Lavender & hazelnut crusted salmon with lemon and lavender oil new potatoes. The lavender works perfectly with the salmon and the hazelnuts add a nutty crunch to the delicate salmon. So, now onto the fun part, how you can create the perfect lavender meal. INGREDIENTS 1/4… read more »

Posted on Wednesday, 26 February

(Image Source http://www.pinterest.com/pin/159174168051953732/) We often get asked if you can plant lavender in pots, well the simple answer is yes you can. Lavender plants look absolutely stunning in pots, especially if you do not have a large garden and still want to enjoy the beauty and fragrance of lavender. A good rule of thumb is the finished height of your plant is normally the width it will grow to, so for instance if you have just purchased a beautiful hidcote lavender, which will grow to approximately 35-45cm you will need a 35-45cm pot or 70-90cm pot if you would like 2… read more »

One Lump or Two? How to Create Lavender Sugar Cubes

Posted on Friday, 31 January

Making your own sugar cubes may seem like a bit of a faff, but I can assure you it is completely worth the effort! Lavender sugar cubes have a huge variety of uses, you can add them to a celebratory glass of champagne, flavour your tea or even pop them into a nice glass of home made lemonade. Lavender is incredibly delicate and fragrant, which is one of the reasons it works so well with sugar. The lavender syrup will take the edge off of the sweetness of the sugar while adding a wonderful flavour. Now onto the fun part,… read more »

The Ultimate Lavender Biscuit

Posted on Thursday, 9 January

(Image Source http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85216617922298805/) The humble Jammie Dodger, the biscuit of my childhood. With the crumbly biscuit and jammie centre I was hooked after my first bite! As I have grown ever so slightly older my taste buds have changed and I now find my trusty biscuit of choice a little too sweet. Why not choose another biscuit brand I hear you ask, well in short I was not willing to give up on my jammie dodger filled future just yet. My moment of inspiration came after I had some utterly scrumptious home made lavender and blueberry jam with crumpets one Sunday… read more »

I’m Dreaming of a White Spring Garden

Posted on Monday, 23 December

 (ImageSource http://www.pinterest.com/pin/295971006731409358) With Christmas just around the corner I am always reminded of Christmases gone by which involved a blanket of perfectly white snow. I adore the Christmas season and winter in general for several reasons, namely that my fire can be used on a daily basis, that its perfectly acceptable to drink a nice mulled wine before 7pm and of course the promise of snow. I know that snow is not always guaranteed at Christmas, but I can live in hope! If however snow does not make an appearance I can feel safe in the knowledge that come spring my… read more »
