Summer is definitely here with the first colour now on the lavender. We are often asked when will the lavender be in colour and thats a difficult thing to predict. Its greatly affected by the weather and strangely, lavender matures more quickly in periods of alternating rain then sun, than just hot sunny weather.
This year things are probably a bit ahead of normal, and with the hot weather predicted for this week (forecast being right) then the lavender will come into flower very quickly. As you can see from the picture it is well on its way to colour this year
