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!
