It's fair to say that 2020 hasn't gone the way it was supposed to for any of us. We've had all our spring markets and garden shows cancelled, which left us in a bit of a pickle, but we found a way to get through lockdown, and provided a home delivery service, as well as collections from our home in Gosport.
Now it's June, and things are looking a little bit brighter than 3 months ago. All the summer chilli festivals and other big events have now been cancelled too, but the farmers markets have reopened, and this is where we will be concentrating our efforts for the remainder of the year. The dates for the farmers markets we will be attending are listed on the 'events' page, and they will be in Winchester, Romsey and Southsea.
If you want to place an order for collection from one of the markets, or from us in Gosport, then please email us your order via the 'contact us' page of this website.
Yvonne’s Plants is a small company with a big passion for growing quality plants. We are a little bit different to most plant growers as we concentrate on growing edible plants as opposed to ornamental plants. We grow an extensive range of vegetable plants, herbs, fruit bushes, alongside a limited range of wild flower plants.
We are based in Hampshire, and most weekends from March to October we can be found at Farmers Markets, Garden Shows, Chilli Festivals and Food Festivals throughout Hampshire and the surrounding counties. As the season progresses we are able to offer our own fresh produce at the events, giving you a chance to try unusual varieties, and thus inspiring you to grow them yourselves the following year.
Please see our 'events' page for a full listing of the events we will be attending this year, as we do not have a premises that it open for visitors.
While our spring events tend to be the same year to year, there will be more events added for the summer so please check our website or Facebook page for regular updates.
The range of vegetable, fruit and herbs we grow is extensive, and we have a particular penchant for the more unusual varieties, but our biggest passion is for tomatoes, peppers and chillies, of which we have a combined total of around 500 varieties. Please see the 'plants' pages for more information on all the things we grow, including our ever increasing number or growing guides for the plants we sell.
