Bulbs For Spring

By Paul, 20/09/2021 10:29 am

We have availble now our full selection of Spring flowering bulbs. Everything you need to add a touch of colour to the earlier part of the year and break out from the winter gloom. From the beautiful reticulated Iris to the show-off Daffodils we have the lot and the quality looks really good again this year. We always say start with good quality bulbs and your spring display is pretty much guaranteed. If you’re planting swathes of Daffodils we have bulk nets of Daffs to make an impact. The conditions are perfect for planting right now so don’t delay, plant your Spring Flowering Bulbs Now!

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 are Open – Visiting during Lockdown 2

By Paul, 05/11/2020 10:20 am

We are pleased that the government has placed Garden Centres into the essential retail category this time round and therefore we can remain open. All our exsisting, stringent Covid safety precautions remain in place and we continue to monitor the advice to provide as safe a visit as possible. With this in mind I would remind everyone that hand washing facilities are provided at the entrance and these are expected to be used before entering and leaving the site. Additional sanitiser is on hand too. Social distancing with a minimum of 2 metres between other customers and staff is to be observed at all times. Face coverings are required at all times in enclosed areas and we encourage there use even in open areas of the site. Although this is a quieter time of year for us there may still become times when we need to restrict the number of people on site at one time. All our trolleys and baskets are sanitised after use and a regular program of surface cleaning of touched surfaces if carried out at regular intervals. No Dogs are allowed on site and children must be kept under control at all times. We are still not taking cash payments and ask that you pay using contactless payments where possible. As before we ask that those in vulnerable categories do not come to the nursery in person but stay safely at home. Please contact us and we will see if we can help those in need with our local contact free delivery service.

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.
