The four tours we did last August (2023) proved to be very sucessful. Everyone who came seemed to enjoy themselves and we had some lively questions and conversations on the way round. The two hours we allocated for each tour rushed by, with us only just managing to get to see everything before it was time to stop.
We plan on running the tours again next August (2024), but will not set the dates until closer to the time.
Guided tours of Sea Spring Farm – the home of Sea Spring Seeds and Sea Spring Plants.
This year we have decided to offer our customers a chance to see the workings of Sea Spring Seeds and Sea Spring Plants. So we are offering four guided tours around our nursery, covering the main activities we do here.
• Seed production
• Development of growing techniques
• Variety trials
Each tour will be around two hours long and will be limited to 20 people.
Sea Spring Farm is our small plant nursery that supports our online businesses, Sea Spring Seeds and Sea Spring Plants. In August its greenhouses will be full of chilli seed crops, and the tunnels will have tomato variety trials, seed crops of exotic vegetables, chilli plants for display and selling, and many more things. The outdoor areas have other vegetable variety trials.
The nursry is situated on a slope overlooking the English Channel in West Dorset. It is in the small seaside village of West Bexington, which is easy to reach from the local towns, Bridport (6 miles), Dorchester (13 miles) and Weymouth (15 miles).
