A hot and spicy weekend is in store at one Kent garden.

Things will be heating up as visitors travel to Mexico via Lullingstone as the annual Mexican Celebration Weekend returns to Lullingstone Castle on Saturday, September 15 and Sunday, September 16.

Delving into his World Garden, plant hunter extraordinaire Tom Hart Dyke will be leading a Mexican plant tour, with music to evoke a Mexican atmosphere.

Visitors will be able to see the Hot & Spiky Cacti House and the brand new Hot ‘n’ Juicy House at 12.30pm and 2.30pm.

It's not just the plants that will be getting in the mood, as the castle marquee will have a Mexican themed menu for the weekend, and there will be music too.
