Chard Farm Valierian Nov12

It's very Valerian on the Farm!

29 November 2012

It's that gorgeous time of the year on the farm when our valerian is in full flower. Valerian is a Central Otago wild flower – it seems to thrive in our harsh environment and produces very intense colours.  This intense colouring is thought to be due to a combination of our highish UV light and mild continental climate – with cool nights and warm days.  Whatever it is… there’s a riot of colour out here on the farm…
