-SAT 9PM The simply amazing Richard Ray Farrell is gonna show us all why hes considered one of the very finest blues musicians in the world! We are very lucky to have him perform in our little bar as often as he does so don’t miss him cause it really is a blues masterclass!
-SUN 1400HRS Now, anyone on our terrace last Sunday will tell you what a great day we all had and that was because of a certain Mr Lee Townsend who never ever let’s us down. He’s back again this week and if last week is anything to go by, BOOK TABLES PEOPLE! We did run out of seats outside by 3pm and we did have to close our kitchen at 6pm because we just had no prepped food left! Bookings are only taken for people who wish to eat so don’t hang about or risk being let down! FB-Link

Vetiver Spain of Sayalonga:
We have potted Vetiver of different sizes and also in trays of multiple plants that we have grown in our greenhouses for sale. They are more mature plants which will establish quickly in colder climates. They are for pick up only due to their weight. We also have the normal slips available as usual. We can easily ship those if needed.
Check out our new addition of “Buttons” on our home page. They have information on planting, best time to plant, A “Vetiver Introduction Letter” with a load of information and of course more photos and videos related to the use of Vetiver.
The best time to plant Vetiver is between now and the end of March. This way the plant gets the benefit of a long hot summer. Remember that Vetiver is indigenous to India and loves the heat. Vetiver can be planted all summer long.
We are also taking orders for Moringa Trees that we have been growing in the greenhouses. There is a limited supply so place your orders soon. There is also a “Buttons” that will take you directly to the Moringa page or the Lemon Grass page with a lot of useful information. We have put together this information to make it easier for you to research.
