Christmas at Cove

By Helen, 25/11/2011 8:01 pm

We have had computer glitches here but we are hopefully back on track with blogging so to let you know we had a delivery of pot grown Nordsman and Blue Spruce today in readiness for Christmas.  They are ideal for a small space at the moment but will reward you over the years with beautiful specimens.  Also another reminder that we are having a Festive Craft Market on Sunday 11th December 10 till 4, lots of beautiful hand made gifts and you can buy your Christmas Trees while you are here.  Joolz of Wicked Willows will be running Kids Crafts Workshops on the day and we will be serving warming mulled wine and mince pies.  Still some pitches left, get in touch if you fancy having a stall…

Dragon Stolen from Cove Garden Nursery

By Helen, 27/09/2011 10:42 am

Have You Seen this Dragon?

We are very upset to make the discovery that Wicked Willows dragon has been stolen some time last night.  Anyone who drives past regularly will be familiar with George and the Dragon and they have become a local landmark.  The dragon is at least 7ft long with a 6ft wing span so who ever stole it must have had a large vehicle to put him in.  If anyone noticed anything suspicious or have seen him please let us know as we want him back.  George will miss her!

Onion Sets Now In!

By Helen, 10/09/2011 8:36 pm

We know are onions here and we have these sets to plant now and ready to harvest in June!

Also just a reminder that we have our winter bedding in,  and are also making up winter hanging baskets to order now.  Hanging baskets aren’t just for summer and we can fill them with pansies, violas and pretty little trailing violas that will cheer you through winter and survive the frosts!

Devon Open Studios runs for two weeks in September and is where you get to have a nose around artist studios and workshops all over the county!  There are hundreds of artists opening their doors and it really is worth having a look at all the creative talent out there.   We are always open here but please do come and have a look at the new work I have been making.  For details of artists exhibiting in your area check out www.devonartistnetwork.co.uk

Other news:  we now have spring flowering bulbs for planting up now.  Also as the summer blooms start to fade we now have autumn/winter bedding packs of cheery pansies and violas amongst others to brighten up a gloomy day!

Best in Show!

By Helen, 04/08/2011 10:28 am

We are thrilled to have been a part of the winning team again as not only did the Flower and Garden Marquee win Best Special Features (all due to the lovely ladies from the flower arranging clubs) but the Marquee won  Best in Show!  This down to the skill and creativity of all the clubs and businesses in interpreting the ‘Dig for Victory’ theme.  Special mentions to the Tiverton Gardening Club, The Mayflower in Tiverton and of course the Tiverton Flower Club (amongst  all the others who made the marquee look and smell heavenly!).  It was a particularly special ‘victory’ as Mary Tucker of the Flower Club who has been co-ordinating the marquee for years is stepping down as chief organiser.  We are really pleased that all her hard work has been rewarded, it won’t be the same without her!
