Purple Haze Lavender

Photos

The Garden

Purple Haze was originally half an acre of cow paddock. In 2001we started with 500 pacific blue and grosso plants. Two years later we planted 500 super and grosso. In 2005 we then planted another 1000 of all of these varieties.

Originally we hand clipped the harvest, but as time went on we purchased a tea harvester from Japan.
This machine has saved us a huge amount of work and is operated by two people.

We plan to develope the gardens around the house in time. View Map

The Gardener

At the age of 8 Sally was passionate about flowers, and as most children did she cut them off and planted them back into the ground. She soon learnt that they didnt grow, but from then on always wanted to grow flowers commercially. For the next few years Sally was in the hospitality industry. At the age of 39 she had a terrible accident involving a tractor, which left her with major skin, arm and leg injuries. Finding relief was hard until a friend gave her some lavender massage cream. From there she went to a lavender farm belonging to a friend and was inspired to start her own business. The cost had always been a factor, but Sally found that it came within her budget.
