Happy Valley Lavender and Herb Farm


Lavender has become the farm's signature since our first block of 500 Munstead Lavender planted in 1987. Our first harvest was in 1988 and filled two wheelbarrows! We currently specialize in cultivating Sweet Lavender varieties (Lavandula angustifolia) for its scent and taste. Late blooming Lavender includes the True Spike Lavender (L. latifolia) and the new hybrid Lavadins (L. x intermedias). Each July we watch the emerging hues of blue, mauve and purple as Lavender Harvest time approaches once more. And the fragrance ~ Lavender Lovers come explore our site!

Garden Path in Langford

 

Your job is to provide me with a sketch of the area in question, a "wish list" of the type of plants you hope to incorporate and a basic knowledge of your shady and sunny areas.

Victoria has an almost year round potential for gardeners to choose a wide variety of Lavenders, Herbs, Vegetables, Shrubs and Trees.

Victoria Garden

Ideally I will plan you an organically grown garden with time and maintenance in balance with your needs and availability. The bonus of including Lavender and Herbs is their lovely scents and second use for cooking delights, craft projects and wonderful eclectic bouquets.

Consultations are also available by phone. Please leave a message on our Farm line (250) 474-5767 and we will set an appointment time. Calls are generally returned when in my evening time. (Pacific Standard/Daylight Zone)
