Just to let you know that the final part of my order, 'Ladybird' Poppies, arrived all in fine shape and looking very healthy. Now potted on and having a rest after the journey. I was absolutely delighted with the violets that I ordered previously and I'll certainly order more at some point now that I know they're happy here. I've been telling gardening friends that they really MUST visit your site!

All tomatoes taste the same don't they?...No!
Every year we add more heritage varieties to our range - come along and find out what they (and a few others) taste like and see how they grow. For 2014 we are hoping to have close to 80 varieties on taste including some new to the UK blight resistant outdoor varieties that we are trialing.
At the same time come and see what we're growing on the nursery, be it fruit, vegetables, herbs or flowers for cutting, and have a natter about your successes and failures with fellow gardeners - or one of us!
Other activities going on...

It gets bigger every year! After the success of our 2013 Chilli and Craft Day we've decided to make it a weekender. Enjoy this little clip from 2013 then scroll down to find out about this years Chilli Fest...
Along with all the Chilli varieties we grow and sell as seed here at the nursery we'll also be growing a multitude of other varieties - from the sublimely cool to the ridiculously hot - taste the ones you dare! (with opportunities to purchase fruits of the ones you like - or seeds for sowing next year).
If you are new to Chilli growing we will, as always, be on hand to advise on growing techniques as well as methods of preserving your crop.
If you are interested in having a craft or food stall at our 2014 Chilli & Craft Fair please do get in touch with us via our Contact Form.
