You will see different plants at different times of the year. As a guide, October, November and December are the busiest harvest times and when the majority of plants are in flower. However Jurlique Farm tours are an all year round experience, and there is always something to see on the tour.
Spring: The harvesting season commences in spring (September, October and November) with the picking of flowers such as sweet violets, daisy and heartsease. This is followed as the season warms with calendula, roses, chamomile, black elder berry flower, yarrow, red clover and lavender. Over the same period leaves are picked from peppermint, birch, lemon balm, sweet violet, nettle and ivy.
Summer, Autumn, Winter: Some herbs require us to pick the whole top part of the plant when it is in full flower as these herbs are full of medicinal qualities. These are selfheal, echinacea, rosemary, marjoram, plantain, chickweed, thyme and sage. This will happen over the growing season early summer to early spring depending on the species.
Winter: Roots are harvested in the winter when the plants have died back and all the nutrients from the past season are stored in the root system. Marshmallow, comfrey, liquorice, dandelion, echinacea and burdock are harvested each winter.
Tours are able to be conducted in most weather conditions with the exception of catastrophic fire days. Refer the CFS website for Fire Danger rating information. This is updated daily at 4pm.
Please come prepared if the weather is wet.
