A week in Kent – the Gardens and Pubs (2006)

Kent is known as the Garden of England because of its warm climate and fertile soil. Famous are its quality products: Kent's beer, strawberries and apples, oysters of Whitstable. Kent has more listed buildings and a longer coastline than any other county in the UK. Whatever you are looking for, Kent will surprise each and every one of you.

 

For fruit tree lovers, visit Brogdale Farm housing the UK National Fruit Collection - ( 550 varieties of pear, 350 of plum, 320 of cherry and smaller collections of bush fruits, nuts and grapes) in 150 acres of orchards, with the largest collection of apple varieties in the world (more than 2300 ­ dessert, culinary and cider). One of the earliest-flowering dessert apples at Brogdale is Vista, which is in bloom from early May; Idared, Discovery, Jonagold and Cox's Orange Pippin follow in mid-May. The latest flowering varieties include Worcester Pearmain and Gala. The maturation dates for fruit span more than 100 days.
