Mid Devon Show 2012

By Helen, 27/07/2012 2:39 pm

Its that time of the year again, the Mid Devon show is upon us!  Here is a sneak preview of our stand, the  theme this year is ‘Seed to Feed’, it’s always a challenge to come up with new ideas and beautiful plants but think it looks OK, in fact the whole marquee is looking very colourful with the Tiverton Flower Club floral arrangements and the display put on by Tiverton Garden Club.  There is plenty to do at the show, a packed craft marquee and of course all the usual fur and feather and rural skills.  So come in and see us!

New pots now in!

By Helen, 22/07/2012 5:50 pm

We have just received a new delivery of pots from the lovely folk of Pot Porrium!  Very reasonably priced and we are the only nursery in Devon who stock them, so you are sure to find something different.   They are also very frost proof as they are fired higher than most other pots. I particularly like these glazed pots below, beautiful colours with a metallic sheen to them,  they will certainly stand out!

Sparkly Pots!

Monday saw the people of Bampton coming together to plant up the public areas and hang the baskets.  It was a really busy afternoon and everyone got involved.  Am really looking forward to seeing the plants flourish and put Bampton back on the floral map.  Click on the link to Bamptons Web Site for pictures.  http://www.bampton.org.uk/bigplant.html

Easter Sunday Craft Fair

By Helen, 04/04/2012 6:59 pm

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!

Wicked Willows Exhibition

By Helen, 17/03/2012 9:07 am

Joolz and Woody of Wicked Willow have been very busy the last few months making sculptures for a year long exhibition at National Trust Knightshayes.  This is going to be an amazing opportunity for them and a really special setting to appreciate their work.  Whilst you’ll have to go and see what amazing creations they have come up with here is a taster with Joolz’ rather splendid ‘Cheval’.  The exhibition begins at the beginning of April but check with Knightshayes for opening times.
