A396 Road Closure

By Paul, 23/06/2020 9:44 am

Just to let everyone know that the road between the Exeter Inn roundabout and our selves is closed for ‘essential maintenance’. This will effect anyone coming to the Nursery from the north (Bampton and Dulverton). We can still be accessed from the south from Tiverton, Stoodleigh etc. The official diversion is mile round via the link road but there are two routes in either going over the top to Van Post and down Cove Hill then right at the bottom (ignor the road closed ahead sign) or taking the lane over Half Penny Bridge and over the top of Holmingham Quarry, then left down the hill and left again at the crossroads. The works should be completed in under 2 weeks (hopefully a lot less). I’m sure you’ll all apreciate that this is all we need on top of everything else thta’s happened this year. If you can make it to us please drive safely.

Nursery reopening 13th May

By Paul, 11/05/2020 10:04 pm

In line with Government guidance that Garden Centres can reopen from 13th May 2020 the Nursery is now open from 10am to 4pm Daily. We will be following guidance on strict Social Distancing Measures as outlined in the HTA Safe Trading Guidance backed up with a full risk assessment designed to protect our customers and staff.

  • We firstly ask that if you fall into the vulnerable categories, that you stay safely at home.
  • Customers will be required to comply to these measures as a condition of entry to the Nursery.
  • There will be a limit to the number of customers permitted at one time and this will be monitored at the entrance. To help with this we ask that only one household member comes alone.
  • We will not be allowing children on site at this time & dogs will no longer be permitted.
  • Hand washing facilities are available at the entrance and gloves and sanitiser will be offered but we ask you to bring your own if you can, to save on resources.
  • Whilst on the nursery a strict 2 metre minimum distancing should be maintained throughout.
  • Certain areas will be closed to the public and others limited to just one in and one out.
  • We are accepting payment by card only. No Cash!

We must insist that these terms are complied with otherwise we reserve the right to refuse service and you will be asked to leave. We have revised our opening times in order to allow for staff to carry out other essential duties safely. The Nursery will be open from 10am until 4pm Daily. We thank you for your support during this period and ask for your continued patience, especially at busy times.

New Local Delivery Orders Suspended

By Paul, 29/04/2020 6:51 am

Due to the huge number of orders already received we have had to temorarily suspend taking new orders as of today. We are trying hard to deliver all the orders received and responded to already but regret that we are unable to accept any new orders for the time being. We will be watching the goverments respose to pressure to unlock Nurseries and Garden centres over the next few weeks and will respond accordingly. If the Nursery continues in lockdown we will reintroduce Local Delivery Ordering once we have cleared the backlog.

Thank you for your patience and support through this testing period.

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.

Flaming June at Cove

By Helen, 20/06/2010 4:35 pm
Summer is really here, we are watering twice daily to make our thirsty plants look nice and healthy for you, potting up in temperatures of 32 degrees in the polytunnel and generally getting a nice healthy Devon tan, make the most of it I say!  The baskets we did for the lovely folks of Bampton and Dulverton have gone out and are looking good out so we are feeling very proud of them and I will be posting photos of them as soon as I can get out there to do so.
If you are still after basket plants we have some left  on offer of 10 for £10 and we have made some ready to go as well as some pots for instant easy colour.  If like me you are disillusioned by the efforts of our nations football team or just can’t be bothered with the World Cup come on in and chose some plants for the summer garden instead of shouting at the TV!  If you are looking forward to Wimbledon and enjoy a glass of Pimms while watching we have concocted our special Pimms hanging basket which has strawberries, cucumber and mint,  all the ingredients you need for a perfect Pimms wit out the alcohol!
Finally if you are making the most of the dry weather and are getting out the barbeque we are stocking Bulworthy Project Charcoal from Rackinford, its local handmade charcoal and it will be the best barbeque you ever had.  The last barbeque we did was when we had friends staying over, while chatting to one of the young sons he suddenly said ‘sheep’ I explained how there were sheep in the fields next to us, turned around to where he was looking to find these three strays munching at our plants!  So we had much fun trying to herd them out of our garden but it would have been nice to keep them if they ate the weeds!
