Our Feedback
Ordered 60 Pearlwort plugs in mid-July as a low maintenance alternative to grass. Packaging and protection was excellent and plugs were in superb condition. I split each plug into 4 and planted directly into the soil which had been well prepared beforehand. The somewhat warmer summer meant more frequent watering to ensure the plugs settled into place. By next summer I anticipate the soil between the stepping stones in the garden to be completely filled with pearlwort. It is planted in direct sun and deeply shaded areas but all are growing and spreading well. Most of the plugs flowered and the spread has been quite amazing. Because of the layout, a lawnmower or strimmer would not fit so an alternative had to be found. Victoriana Nursery provided the perfect solution - a low maintenance grass alternative which also produces small white flowers. Everyone who sees it loves the look and the idea of no real maintenance. Victoriana Nursery has a range of unusual plants so I will definitely be after future purchases and spreading the word to those who are curious or are 'green fingered'. Great value for money. Keep the area weed free as the plants spread and weeds will be a thing of the past.

Hotting Up For Chilli Fest

September already - the year just seems to have flown by! Of more surprise is how Autumnal it has become so quickly this year. Of course Autumn doesn't officially start until the 21st of September, but already the mornings are cooler and even on the sunniest days the sun seems to have really lost its strength.

Here at the nursery we're busy – busy planning for the Autumn and Winter and busy preparing for our Challock Chilli Fest – so not too many 'words' this month.

Visitors to the nursery will notice a huge difference as we have grubbed out and hard pruned huge areas, all to be re-landscaped and planted over the next few months.

As far as our Chilli Fest is concerned, we're hoping for good weather as this year we've doubled the number of varieties that will be on taste, more than doubled the number of Craft & Food stalls joining us – and even doubled the amount of days the event is on! Full information can can be found at Challock Chilli Fest.

On top of all that we've still got the 'day job' to keep us busy too - producing young vegetable plants and ornamental plants for the Autumn and into next Spring.

In the garden its time to get your Autumn sowings under way. Its also a great time to be planting containerised fruit; the soil is still warm so the plants will establish before the onset of Winter.

Be sure to follow all our antics at the nursery on Twitter @Victoriana_NG - for daily updates and nursery news tweeted with a grin.
