Tour Barossa Valley – Henschke Cellar door tour is a 1 hour drive each way and offers a great wine tasing experience,
The Henschke Cellar Door, housed in the original 1860s Grain Barn at the family property in Keyneton was built from field stone and mud by first-generation winemaker Johann Christian Henschke, a stonemason and wheelwright by trade, and an early pioneer of South Australia.
Lavender in South Australia
Not only does it have an intoxicating scent, lavender looks simply divine in the garden. You can find it in classic deep-purple tones, but it’s also available in dark-to-pale pinks, pastel purples and even white. Lavenders require little maintenance once established, and the flowers are suited to drying for craft projects. It truly is a herb that has it all!
Climate for Lavenders
Climate Lavenders thrive in warm, temperate climates, but also grow in cool and cold areas, depending on the variety. As natives of the Mediterranean, they ideally like their summers hot and dry, and winters cool. English lavender does not tolerate humid summers very well, but other lavenders will happily grow in areas of mild humidity. Frost tolerance varies with the species, so check plant labels before buying.
Aspect Plant in full sun and protect from strong winds. If there are spots in the garden that bask in the hot afternoon heat, plant lavenders – they will love it! However, lavenders will also grow in semi-shade, provided the soil conditions are met.
