It’s the Easter Sunday Arts and Craft Market at Cove Garden Nursery this Easter Weekend and although we won’t be enjoying a heatwave like recent days we won’t actually be knee deep in snow like some parts of the country!  Forecast is fair but cooler and it won’t stop us from putting up our gazebos for our annual Easter Sunday Craft Market!  We have a good selection of quality crafts such as: ceramics, jewellery, textiles, wood workers, photography, cupcakes, glass and a blacksmith complete with mobile forge to name a few!  Its a great day out for all the family in the beautiful Exe valley and you can even get a cream tea or cake on the lawn!

Mothers Day Gifts

By Helen, 02/03/2012 7:38 am

Who thinks their mum is a star?  Why not show her by giving her a handmade glass star for Mothers Day?   It can be made to any colour scheme you require just get in touch and we could come to some arrangement.   We also have bunting or these cute little keyrings amongst other craft ideas.  Of course you could treat her to some plants but if you are really stuck for ideas we do supply the National Garden Scheme gift vouchers!
