Just a quick reminder for your diaries. Victoriana Nursery are holding a Chilli tasting day this Saturday 24th September 11am-3.30pm, near Ashford in Kent. If you’re a Chilli fan then it’s got to be worth it with 24 varieties to taste, plus there will also be Tomato tasting-15-20 varieties, popcorn making, children’s activities and a produce stall.

We had a great afternoon tomato tasting a few weeks ago as Stephen Shirley and other staff at this specialist fruit and vegetable nursery were on hand to give very friendly expert advice on all the plants that they grow and sell.

By car, the nursery is about an hour and fifteen minutes drive from North London. There is a no. 666 (no, really) bus running from Ashford station to the nursery, but this departs at hourly intervals, so careful route planning would be in order for this to be a smooth and not-too-lengthy journey.

If you’re visiting, it’s also a great time to buy Asparagus, Strawberry, Japanese Wineberry and Blackberry plants, order bare-rooted raspberry canes for autumn delivery and to have a good look around the nursery to discover lesser known fruit and veg plants that the nursery stock (I also came away with a Kiwi vine). If you can’t make it to the nursery this weekend, their website is packed full of great information too.
