About Cornwall Lavender
Cornwall Lavenders' home is Nanplough Farm in Cury nr Helston. Situated just inland of the Atlantic coast on the western side of the Lizard Peninsula Cornwall, we are the UK’s most southerly Lavender Farm. In 2017 we scattered wildflower seeds on 5 acres to encourage and improve biodiversity and give something back to nature. One of our favourite visitors is the stunning hummingbird hawk moth which feeds on Valerian in the summer months among the bees and butterflies. In the UK many species of bees are in decline, we are working to protect our wildlife and provide an insect friendly habitat. Bees and lavender are very good friends, so we decided to plant Lavender.
Our love of Lavender began years before by discovering the many wonderful natural properties of the essential oil when visiting the Lavender fields of Provence and it set a seed in our hearts which remained dormant until 2018 when we planted just 200 small Lavender plugs of different varieties to test which were suited to the area and before long discovered that the bunnies’ were very partial to one of the varieties but the others, thankfully, were not quite as tasty and were thriving in the Cornish soil, naturally we chose the rabbit proof varieties and in 2019 , with a lot of help from friends, planted 5000 plants by hand in a 3 acre south facing sloped field with another 6 acres planned for springtime.
Both varieties of Lavender grown here have been carefully selected and we intend to add other varieties over time.
