We are big supporters of the RHS and are very excited about the Chelsea Flower show which opens tomorrow. It is always interesting to see the latest developments and of course the wonderful show gardens and displays.

One of our Houseplant suppliers, Dibleys Nurseries is presenting the most wonderful display of Streptocarpus in one of the Marquees again this year; if you keep an eye on our Twitter feed we will post a link on there so you can see yourself.

Come along to the centre over the bank holiday weekend and take a look at our fantastic new range of chilli plants including the Bhut Jolokia variety- the hottest in the world on the Scoville scale.

With some of the more familiar names, including Jalapenos, there are some really interesting varieties for every taste. If you are a fan of the hot stuff why not try growing your own?

With good weather predicted for the weekend there is no better time to come along...
