2013 garden Events and Shows UK
Award-winning Carshalton Lavender is holding 14th
Annual Harvest Fair
Carshalton Lavender, an award-winning heritage
community project, opens its gates to the public at its
14th Open Weekend over 27th and 28th July from 10am
until 4pm. This popular community harvest, and
London’s only Pick Your Own event, will be held at the
three acre Carshalton Lavender field at Stanley Road
can pick their own lavender, enjoy hot food, visit
stalls selling lavender related products and have
aromatherapy treatments from qualified practitioners.
A variety of lavender plants will be for sale along with
lavender for floral, therapeutic or culinary use, or for
drying for craft projects. The lavender harvest is
an excellent opportunity for taking photos of friends
and family in a beautiful outdoor setting. For
younger visitors there will be face painting and other
family activities available. It's also a great
chance to make a study of bees and butterflies.
In 2009, the group was able to distil lavender oil in
Carshalton for the first time in over 100 years.
The Still will be in action over the weekend along with
talks and demonstrations of the oil being distilled.
Exclusive Carshalton Lavender essential oil and floral
water will be available to buy.
In the early 1900s, blue fields of lavender could be
seen all over Carshalton, Wallington, Mitcham, Waddon
and Sutton. Carshalton Lavender plants are all
grown from cuttings taken from the original lavender.
Carshalton Lavender is run by volunteers who are keen to
keep the heritage of the local lavender alive for future
generations. Proceeds from this event keep the
project running from year to year.
The field which is part of the Stanley Road Allotment
site, is behind the Day Centre on Oaks Way. It can
be reached from Stanley Park Road via Balfour Road.
Limited parking, disabled space only. For a map
