After the Snow, Normality!

It's lovely to see the greens & browns of the countryside again after all the snow of last week and to finally be able to get back into Crystal Herbs today. We're sorry for the wait if you placed an order last week, but we're working hard to get all of the orders out asap, so your order should be with you soon!

More Snow... and a Further Delay in Sending Out Orders

Snowplough in Action

We're sorry to say that we're still experiencing real problems with the weather and therefore with sending out your orders. Following on from yesterdays report ( below); although it was no longer snowing this morning, there was a lot of wind blowing large snow drifts across the roads. A number of us set off to try and get in this morning, but even some of the main roads were blocked and the two miles of side roads up to Crystal Herbs, where there will have been no gritting or snow ploughs, were again impassable.

The good news though is that the weather is set to improve significantly over the weekend so we will definitely be back in on Monday and will be dispatching all of your orders as soon as possible. We apologise to all of you waiting for your orders and thank you for your patience.

Snow, Snow & More Snow

Snowy Road

For perhaps the first time ever, we have had to have a 'snow day' here at Crystal Herbs! While we made it in for a while yesterday, we literally had to dig the car out of the carpark, and then again in the drive way, before retreating home in the heavy snow. Today the roads into Crystal Herbs were impassable, so as a result we are a little behind with all of your orders, but we are hoping to be able to get in tomorrow and get them all dispatched!
