Tomato Fiesta!

Join the garden team as we celebrate the humble tomato.

Learn about the history of this essential ingredient from its origins to its popularity today. Sample the variety of flavours from heritage fruits to F1 hybrids.

Walled Gardens, such as the one at Quex, have a big part to play in the history of growing this exotic fruit, once considered deadly poisonous.  We annually raise over 20 different varieties of tomato in our glasshouses and polytunnel using easy methods you can copy at home to get the most from your crop.

With tips on cultivation through to harvesting, as well as good varieties to choose from and recipes to try out, we will rejoice in every aspect of growing, cooking and preserving the summer glut.  Take home bags will be available for you to purchase so you can try out your skills in your own kitchen.
