DO you d’amour your pomme?

If ‘love apples’ are your think then Bicester Avenue Garden Centre could be the place for you later this month.

Between May 15 and 22, the Oxford Road based centre will be hosting a week dedicated to growing tomatoes.

Manager, Adrian Drake said: “The French were convinced tomatoes had aphrodisiac properties and called them pommes d’amour or love apples, but in this country they are simply one of our favourite salad items.”

Displays of tomato plants will be on show, while staff will be available to talk customers through the equipment needed and the growing process.
