Per­fect if you like toma­toes

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Summer Fun -

Visi­tors to a nurs­ery had the chance to taste up to 80 dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties of tomato.

Victoriana Nurs­ery Gar­dens at Chal­lock held its an­nual tomato day on Satur­day.

Stephen Shirley, of the fam­i­lyrun busi­ness, said: “We had a few hun­dred peo­ple come.

“We grow 80 va­ri­eties of tomato and sell the seeds and plants.

“We had tomato tast­ings so peo­ple could see what they liked and then buy them to grow them­selves and also had pick your own.”

The nurs­ery also has an an­nual chilli week­end which is on Septem­ber 27 and 28. Around 90 va­ri­eties of chilli will be on show – with tast­ings – and there will be craft and food stalls.
