As we arrived at Lyme View the home of Sea Spring Seeds the sun was out, a big change from last year when we ran between poly tunnels following Joy as she escorted visitors around describing the chillies and the methods they use to grow them so successfully.

Joy and Michael could not make you more welcome, this is not like visiting any other event we go to, but much more a trip to see how some real enthusiasts grow and develop chillies. Famed as the home of the Dorset Naga, but what you find as you wander about is that they are growing all sorts of other unusual and interesting varieties (many of which may make it in to their seed catalogue in the next few years).

As we arrived Michael took us on a trip around some of the closed off green houses to see some of the new chillies they had collected many of which has been sent by other enthusiasts from around the world.

In one poly tunnel he introduced us to a chilli he had called “Hot Juan”, I suspect named as it was a plump, large and warm chilli, we hope to get some seeds for this one when it is ready for one of our competitions.

We had a great visit, and came away with a few fresh chillies that I will be cooking with in the next couple of days.

Below you will find some picture taken during our visit, do take a look at their web site www.seaspringseeds.co.uk where you can order seeds and we recommend you get on one of their courses on growing Chillies and Peppers, Joy and Michael and a great source of knowledge that you only get from years of growing experience.
