Festive Times

By Paul, 24/12/2016 9:59 am

The Nursery will be closed from lunch time Christmas Eve and then will be closed until the 2nd of January 2017. When we come back in January we can look forward to the start of another season! Early January will see the arrival of Seed potatoes and summer flowering bulbs such as Dahlias, Gladioli and Lilies. We continue to offer a great range of flower & vegetable seed from Kings Seeds and Sarah Raven Collections and World Kitchen seeds from Johnsons.  There will also be a January sale and I’ll post more details of that once we’ve decided what is going to be in it!

Have a great time over the festive period and we look forward to hearing about all your great plans for your gardens in 2017.

Devon Grown Christmas Trees

By Paul, 04/12/2016 12:48 pm

Our selection of fresh-cut, Devon grown Christmas trees are now available. And there are, as usual a great selection of either Norman Fir (non-drop) or Traditional Norway Spruce to choose from. Being Devon grown means that they are super fresh having not been transported large distances crammed tightly into crates. Their quality and freshness means that they will last well through the festive period! To get the best from them we recommend cutting 3cm off the bottom and standing in a bucket of clean water for 24 hours before bring into the house. Trees will also last best if the stand used to display them holds water too. Remember to top it up regularly but be careful of water near any electrics!

We also have a selection of pot grown Christmas trees for those who want a smaller tree that they can plant out in the garden after the festive season. Don’t leave it too late, if you like we can look after your chosen tree until you are ready to take it. We are also able to deliver trees locally, contact us for details.

More A396 Off-Peak Road Closures

By Paul, 03/05/2016 8:07 am

Today sees the start of the final set of off-peak road closures for the section of the A396 between ourselves and the Exeter Inn towards Bampton. The road will be closed between 9.30am and 3.30pm daily. Closures are due to continue until the May 13th. I am assured by the contractors that the road will be open on Sunday unless they encounter problems. This is the final stage of the works and hopefully after May 13th we can all get back to normal. The A396 from Tiverton to us as usual remains fully open. To help with access we will again be opening until 7pm in the evening on all days where off-peak closures occur.

Does’t time fly. Christmas is appon us once again and as per usual we have our selected Devon Grown Christmas Trees. There are lots to choose from in sizes from 4 ft up to 12ft. Traditional Norway Spruce, non-neddle-drop Nordman, and non-needle-drop Frasier fir offer something to suit all tastes.  If you need a new stand to support your tree we have some sturdy ones that hold the tree and a little water reservoir to help keep the tree fresh.  Trees can be netted for your convenience and we can even arrange local delivery if required. Call in and select your tree and if you are not ready to take it home yet then we can look after it until nearer to christmas.  We also have some potted trees, mostly Norway Spruce, which if looked after properly ove the festive period could be planted out in the garden.
