Devon Grown Christmas Trees 2020

By Paul, 27/11/2020 3:08 pm

We now have our Fresh cut, Devon grown Christmas trees available and it seems that customers are eager to start the festivities early this year. There are both Nordman Fir (non-drop) and Traditional Norway Spruce available as well as potted trees. Sizes available are up to about 10ft tall for both types. As with everything we are operating in a Covid-safe manner to ensure maximum protection of saff and customers (see our opening times page for details). Local delivery of Christmas trees can be arranged, give us a call for details.

To get the best from your tree we recomment cutting about 3cm from the bottom of the trunk and standing the tree overnight in a bucket of clean water. The cooler the space allocated for teh tree the better, so turn down low any adjacent radiators. Use a stand that will also hold some water and keep this topped up with clean water only (take care with regards to electrics).

The Nursery is now open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday and Sundays 10am to 4pm.

Devon Grown Christmas Trees

By Paul, 02/12/2019 11:45 am

It’s that time of year agian and we have our wonderful selection of Christmas Trees available to buy now. As usual we have both Nordman Fir (Non-Drop) and Traditional Norway Spruce in sizes from 3ft up to 10ft. Come in and choose your tree and even if you are not ready for it we can look after it until you are.  All are trees are grown in Devon and are freshly cut just before delivery to us. This makes them the most sustainable choice for a tree this Christmas. For every tree cut a new one, at least, is replanted. We are able to arrange local delivery and we can net trees to make them easier to take away. We also have some potted trees about 3ft tall, which can be planted out after the festive period.  If you need a stand for your tree then we have those too. We are open 7 days a week right though to Christmas Eve.

It Looks, from the forecast, that we have the best day of the Easter weekend this Easter Sunday for our Craft Market. There will be something for everyone with a diverse range of skilled crafters displaying their wares. We’ve got lots of stock ready to go such as Senettii, Primroses and plenty of bulbs in bud or flower. Spring flowering Heathers will be buzzing with bees when the sun does eventually come out.  There are lots of the standard 9cm pots of Perennials available now at £1.99 or 3 for £5. These are an ideal way of creating beautiful, colourful summer borders.
