Our Feedback

Dear Team Just a quick line to thank you for the impressive service provided by your company. Delivery was prompt, goods not damaged (rare these days!), beautiful Roses and complete package/wrapping even better than I could possibly have imagined. People are so quick to complain these days but here is a compliment for a change. I will certainly be recommending your nursery & appreciate the effort taken.

As a category, 'stem vegetables' comprises of a large range of plants from all around the world, the vast majority of which can be grown with relative ease within our British Isles. Here at Victoriana, we have endeavoured to grow and supply a substantial range of stem vegetables, choosing only the best tasting varieties with strong growing characteristics.

Whether you have a preference for Sea Kale, fancy growing your own asparagus plants, want to incorporate the structurally magnificent cardoons into your vegetable or flower bed, or perhaps just want some rhubarb plants for the kitchen larder, you'll find all that you need via our website.

The term 'stem vegetables' actually refers to plants that are mostly comprised of stems that grow above ground. For the purposes of ease, we may have also included a few vegetable plants that aren't technically stem vegetables, but whose structure includes lots of stem tissue that can be blanched, boiled, sautéed and cooked, eaten and enjoyed in a multitude of ways, much like their 'true' stem vegetable counterparts.

All stem vegetables are supplied as live plants, ready to plant in quickly as possible once your delivery has been made.
