A huge thank you to all those who buy Islip Lavender products thus supporting this tremendous village venture. Over the last 6 months we have had over £1,000 of stock.

I have been approached by a nursery to see if we would be willing to sell a few plants. Please let me know if you would be interested. Customers could place orders.

Hopefully later this month or at the beginning of May we will have Rectory Farm asparagus. Always extremely popular, so watch for up to date information at the shop.

Don't forget we have local rapeseed extra virgin, truffle & infused oils on sale. A real must for your store cupboard. The infused oils offer many opportunities for adding variety to your meals. Ideas & recipes are available on their website:

I have just had deliveries of Rosie Howlett & Vif image cards. Many are of Spring flowers including Rosie's beautiful ones of fritillaries, violets, primroses & orchids. So stock up now.

Wishing you a Very Happy Easter.
