There are actually few plants that have proven to be as useful and fragrant as the delicate lavender. It originated in the region from the Mediterranean down through Eastern Africa and into Southwest Asia and also through southeast India. It is a scent and flower that has been prized for so many years and so many amazing medicinal properties.
Nowadays this, what I would call a very hardy plant, is cultivated and used around the world for many things.
There is going to be a Flowering Lavendar event on Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December 2019. This event will be suitable for the whole family and you can buy your tickets at this website.
Everyone is going to enjoy this day as it will be full of fun for the weekend while having so many of the flowering rows of lavender at Warratina Lavender Farm, a boutique farm on just 15 acres. The venue for this farm is 105 Quayle Road, Wandin Yallock.
This is a private home garden which will be full of blooming salvias, roses, rhododendrons, azaleas and more when you arrive there. This garden will be open for you to look through over this weekend for your enjoyment. The money that is received from the daily pakings will be donated to the local Country Fire Authority.
At this function, there will be plenty for the children to do there - there will be:
A bouncy castle
Animals to pet and see
Dancing to watch
A bagpiper and event performances from Rudy the One-Man Band!
Watch how the lavender is harvested. These use some old-time methods
Go on a guided walk right through the gardens and put a rug on the grass and sit back under a tree and enjoy the ambience.
Costs for the event are Adult $10, Child $5, Family ticket $25 (2 adults and 2 children) The tickets are now on sale via the website as per the above link and we would recommend you buy these as soon as possible as their are only a certain amount of tickets that will be available on the gate on the day.
