Upon dropping into the bakery at the Garden Centre, I found Lynn our super Baker adding a most peculiar looking addition to her scone mix??
Must admit I thought she’d gone all “Heston Blumenthal” on us and would be adding dry ice to the Victoria Sponge next!!
But she explained,” it is actually the Lavender herb for our seasonal Lavender Scones” ( has she been talking to Lavender Mad Phil (one of our plantsmen) I wonder?)
No I was amazed to discover that they have been flying out the cafe so quickly I haven’t even seen them!!
“Delicious with strawberries and fresh cream” she added.. (OK I guess it wouldn’t kill me to try one then).
