Thank you for your enquiry. I am sorry but this is only a summer holiday activity. The maize seeds aren't even sown yet. We aim to open by about the 3rd week in July, as the schools are breaking up.

Hi, sorry we are not open until 22nd July - the plants are only a few inches tall at the moment, but growing brilliantly with this warm humid weather! I cannot get into google to amend our opening times, sorry. Sarah
