Seed Potatoes, Onion Sets and Summer Flowering Bulbs have begun to arrive to announce the new year and the start of preparations for a new season.Potato Varieties this year are as follows:
- Earlies; Accord, Formost, Red Duke of York, Swift, Winston and coming soon Premier.
- Second Earlies; Maris Peer, Nicola, Saxon, Wilja and coming soon Charlotte.
- Main Crop; Pentland Crown, Cara, Romano, Picasso, Valor and Pink Fir Apple.
All these are Sold Loose so you can choose as few or as many tubers as you require. We also have a few packs of Organic Arron Victory which I understand from the TV last year have excellent flavour!
Onion and Shallot sets are also in as are ‘Red Champagne’ Rhubarb crowns (a good sweet variety). Add this to our selection of Fruit trees, bushes and Vegetable seeds and you have all you need for a very productive “Grow Your Own” season here at Cove Garden Nursery……See you soon!
Everything you need for Valentines? Well maybe, but we have just had another delivery of stock. This time it included a great selection of ornamental & fruiting trees, soft fruit & roses. If you were planning on buying roses for valentines why buy only a dozen when you could buy the whole bush! We have a great selection of popular varieties of climbers, bush, patio roses and a selection of David Austin English Shrub Roses. We also have some superb standard roses including varieties such as ‘Champagne Moment’, ’Simply the Best’ & ‘ Tickled Pink’ would make great gifts.
We now have a good selection of fruit trees. Old favourites such as Cox’s & Bramley’s Apples, pears, cherrys, apricots, plums, peaches, nectarines and quinces are among the selections. The trees we’ve had in are 2 year old stock and should stat to produce fruit soon (possibly a small crop this year!) Soft fruit includes Currants (Black, Red & White), Gooseberries, Raspberries, Rhubarb and the “super fruit” Blueberries.
If you’re looking for an ornamental tree we now have a selection to suit gardens large and small. For larger gardens we have spectacular trees such as Acer ‘Crimson King’. For the smaller garden we have gems such as Malus ‘Royal Beauty’.
