Over the next few weeks different stretches of road in the area will be closed for laying fibre optic cables for superfast broadband. Hooray!! As of 13th July for 19 days there is no access from Dunk’s Green along Hamptons Road to Park Road. The junction of Hamptons Road with Park Road is not affected (until the 4th August for 2 days). Approaching from the A26 remains open despite any road closed/diversion signs.
DID YOU KNOW?
• We have the most comprehensive and well-researched lavender collection in the UK. At the last count 400+ species and cultivars.
• At least 95% of our plants are truly home grown from cuttings from our own dedicated stock plants.
• Our plants travel under 100 metres before leaving the nursery and aren’t flown in as cuttings from Israel or Costa Rica as is much ‘UK’ stock.
• We have exported to 26 countries.
• We have been privileged to supply, usually with starter stock, most of the lavender growers and emporiums in the UK, from Cornwall to the Scottish islands.
• We are the largest lavender brand in Germany. Visit http://downderry-lavendel.de/
• We remain a small family business dedicated to fulfilling your lavender and rosemary needs!
