Dear team, my Shirley Giant Onions are growing like mad - all my mates are asking how I grow them so big.I told when I received them as plants I followed your instrutions and just sat back and watched them grow. So I gave them your email. Can't wait to taste them. Be in touch again.

Unlike many companies selling over the internet we welcome visitors to our Nursery and Plant Centre; if you are ever in the South East of England why not come and find us? At our nursery we stock a far wider range of plants than we offer by mail order as we grow many subjects (both ornamental and edible) in too smaller quantity to list online. And of course you will find helpful friendly advice from people who have a genuine interest in what they grow and sell.
It would be wrong for us to say we are a 'day out' destination – an hour would probably be more than sufficient time for most visitors. We are however very well located for those who wish to combine their visit with other local attractions. Literally just down the road are the forest walks and ideal spots for picnics in King's Wood; King's Wood is also now home to the Stour Valley Arts Project. Leeds Castle is just twenty minutes distant from us, as is the historic city of Canterbury. The Port Of Dover and the Channel Tunnel Terminal are approximately forty minutes distant so you could even combine your visit with a trip to France!
We're open six days a week, so if you are in the locality do come and see us!
Monday - Friday: 9.30am - 4.15pm
Saturday & Bank Holidays: 10.30am - 3.30pm
Sundays: We are closed on Sundays except for Challock Chilli Fest as we like to spend the day with our children.
Please Note: We may close early if weather is grotty and miserable, or we 'haven't seen anyone all day' - so if you are journeying from afar and think you will be with us later in the day please call ahead and we will stay open.
Christmas Closure: Please note we are closed from 4pm Friday 19th December 2014 until 9am Monday 5 January 2015 for our Christmas break, our last order dispatch date will be Thursday 18th December.
For Sat Nav Systems...
Use either our postcode - TN25 4DG (which should bring you to the centre of our car park as we were with the OS guy when he set the location) or the general postcode for Buck Street which is TN25 4AR.
Our map grid reference is Lat 51:12:54N, Lon 0:53:18E.
Victoriana is a true working nursery and to this end some paths (especially greenhouse paths) are narrow and some surfaces are uneven; that said, we would say we have, in general, good disabled access - and what cannot be reached we are more than happy to fetch.
We do not at present have public toilet facilities.
We do not at present have refreshment facilities, though there are several local pubs and the villages of Charing and Wye (both approximately 4 miles distant) have tea rooms, pubs and restaurants; we are always happy to advise and provide directions.
