Changes to Covid-19 Rules July 19th 2021

By Paul, 19/07/2021 2:40 pm


As from July 19th 2021 and considering the changes to legal covid-19 restrictions Cove Garden Nursery have decided to amend our conditions of entry:

  • We ask first that if you have ANY of the symptoms of Covid-19 that you still stay away from the nursery for 10 days. These include persistent cough, fever, headache, loss of taste & smell.
  • If you have received a positive Covid Test or have been in close contact with someone who has, then please stick to the rules and self-isolate and do not under any circumstances come to the Nursery.
  • Please continue to wash your hands or sanitise prior to entering and on leaving the Nursery site. There is a washroom at the carpark end of the Glasshouse.
  • Please use contactless payment where possible. Our till and card machines will continue to be sanitised at regular intervals throughout the day but contactless is best. We will begin taking cash payments, but Card Payments are preferred.
  • We continue to ask that social distancing measures continue. Please keep a minimum of 2 meters distance from other customers and staff.
  • While the legal requirement for face coverings has ended, we politely request that customers continue to use one when in covered areas such as the shop. Our staff will continue using face coverings in enclosed areas and in situations where social distancing is hard to maintain.
  • We continue to sanitise regularly touched zones such as door handles throughout the day, but please avoid touching where practical.

We will continue to monitor the latest advice from PHE and may adjust our conditions of entry as new advice becomes available.  Please watch our Facebook, Twitter and Web Blog for details.

You can always contact us on 01398 331946

or email enquiries@covegardennursery.co.uk

Thank you for your co-operation and hopefully we can all get through this.

Keep Calm and Prepare for Gardening!

Seed Potatoes & Onion Sets

By Paul, 08/01/2021 11:29 am

Our selection of seed potatotes has arrived with more varieties than ever before. All varieties have been selected because of their suitability to South-West growing conditions but also for their flavour and yeilds. The list inclused 7 earlies (Accord, Arran Pilot, Foremost, Home Guard, Orla, Premiere and Winston) 5 Second earlies (Charlotte, Kestrel, Maris Peer, Nicola and Wilja) and 5 Maincrop (Cara, Diseiree, Picasso, Pink Fir Apple and Setanta).  All vaireties are sold loose so that you only need buy the number of tubers you require, which means you can grow more varieties. Though it is too early plant out in the garden, this is the time to begin the process of Chitting in order to get a head start on the growing season.

We also have our selection of Onion and Shallot sets for planting once the growing conditions start to improve. Varieties available are Sturon, Red Karmen and Stuttgarter in Onions and Red Sun and Golden Gourmet in Shallots.  Don’t forget our great selection of Vegetable and flower Seeds from Kings and we have Organic Veg seed from Johnsons.

With the boom in Grow Your Own last spring I’m sure demand will be brisk this season too, so now is the time to start planning the veg plot to make the best things.

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.

Rose List 2018

By Paul, 21/01/2018 2:23 pm

We have finally put together our rose list for the 2018 season and this is available as a pdf file below.  This is the list of all the rose varieties that we have potted and stock this season and their current stock levels.  I often hesitate about publishing stock list as our stock can change rapidly throughout the year (You will note that several varieties have already sold out or available in limited numbers already). Therefore I would recommend  you check current stock levels before traveling to avoid disappointment. We have again added some new varieties and a few have been lost from the list due to lack of customer interest or poor performance. After trialing the Renaissance, Delbard and Nostalgic roses last season we have increased the range as they performed so well in 2017. If you are after a particular variety it is always worth an enquiry,  we may be able to order it in for the autumn.
