Heaven scent in the lavender hills, Yorkshire post, uk

Any time now the lavender fields of Provence will be in full flower – creating a sea of purple and a feast for the senses. Alexandra Wood reports
The long grey rows of lavender stretch as far as the eye can see – parallel lines marching off to the horizon, lent perspective by the odd picturesque ruin. In summer, the fields are alive with bees as the fragrant harvest is gathered in for one of France's best-loved products.
Catherine Liardet has a charming approach to the workshops she runs from her tiny upstairs kitchen, surrounded by the debris of cooking an evening meal for 10. Everyone is jammed in like sardines in a tin; the lid flies off a jar of freshly-made raspberry and lavender conserve, a glass shatters and aubergine mixture gathers in a pool on the table but Catherine – a cross between Felicity Kendall and Barbara Windsor – is not the slightest bit concerned.

At the International Lavender Conference (TALGA) in Tassie I found it fascinating that people around the world in the Lavender business suffer from the same probems as we do, one huge one being weeds. Lots of idea's are thrown around but there are pros and cons for all of them, there never seems to be a "right thing to do" because all Lavenders grow & respond differently depending on where you live, even simple things can majorly affect the outcome.  Experimentation- see what's best for you and what works. There was a guest speaker from France, a gorgeous girl, Catherine Liardet, she and her family have dedicated there lives to Lavender for over 100 years, they live as one with the lavender. I was Intrigued by her (& her accent, beautiful)  Catherines’ family, farm organically, they "let the sheep in to eat the weeds" before harvest.  This got me thinking.  I am not into chemicals, never really have been, (I clean with mostly with Enjo have done for years) I'd rather get down on my hands and knees and pull the weeds, (which is what we have been doing) but there are only 24 hours in a day, I need some help.  So sheep it is for us for a while. Hopefully they will save us some time?-(& not eat the lavenders)  Lots of hard work has been done in preperation, like fencing,  Michael and Pop have re fenced the whole house yard to sheep proof it, the fence & new gates look so good, great job boys- thankyou.x  All there is left to say now is "go sheep go, give all you've got!"..... but please don't eat my Lavenders.Saturday, June 18, 2011

ABC Rural Report for Northern Tasmania : Lavender from the fields of France
Tasmania's essential oil crops expanding this year

Lavender for essential oils, red poppies and blue cornflowers mixed with wheat; that's the summer scene on Catherine Liardet's French lavender farm.
Catherine Liardet is an agronomy teacher and botany book writer, including 10 books on lavender, which has been the source of her family's livelihood for six generations.
But writing now subsidises Catherine Liardet's lavender farm, because she says the family's tradition of growing and distilling lavender one thousand metres up in France is a bit like a religion.
