Welcome to the wonderful world of lavender......and herbal teas...

 

Located just outside of New Plymouth, we have one hectare [2.5 acres] which looks south to Mount Egmont/Taranaki and north over the city of New Plymouth and towards the Tasman Sea. Of the 2.5 acres, only one is developed for horticulture.

Orignally there were 1400 lavender plants, half of them are Lavandula "Grosso" and the other half are Lavandula "Super". The lavender was planted in 2005, and are producing approximately 15mls of oil per kilogram of flowerheads. These has been replaced in 2017 with new grosso plants.

In 2010 we started growing (herbal) teas. These are mints, chamomile, lemon balm, lemon verbena, and mixes with green and black teas. We are growing both green and black tea and have started harvesting the green tea and are about to start harvesting the black tea. See www.lovelavender.co.nz/herbal teas.

The site receives about 1.2 metres of rainfall each year, is well drained, and exposed to the predominately westerly winds, with an average wind of 12.5 knots.

The principal weeder/dirt farmer is Rex Hendry. He stood down from full-time employment in 2005 after 35 years work, and started to grow garlic and lavender. Companion Sally is managing director of the (herbal) teas and assists with the lavender and garlic harvests.
