The Emperor Returns to the Exe Valley!

By Helen, 10/11/2010 7:35 pm

Some people may be aware of  ‘The Emperor’  the beautiful Exmoor Red Stag and the largest land mammal in the U.K  who may or may not still be alive. It is certainly a story that has captured a lot of debate…   Well  the Emperor is alive and returned to the Exe Valley  in this beautiful willow sculpture created by Woody Fox.   Woody is part of Wicked Willows here at Cove Garden Nursery and they can create anything from this beautiful stag for a large space, a smaller willow sculpture for your back garden or living willow and shelters for anywhere!   They will be running a special Festive Workshop for children on December the 11th making lanterns to beat the Winter gloom!  There are 2 sessions lasting 2 hours and its £10 per child including materials.  If you would like to know more give us a ring for details Joolz 07969554052 or  01398 331946

Going potty again!

By Helen, 15/03/2010 9:56 am

We have just taken delivery of pots from Pot Porrium who travelled from East Anglia and made a wonderful display for us.  We are the only stockists in the South West so you are sure to find something different.

Pots

 

We are also adding to our plant stock on a weekly basis so now have climbers such as clematis and wisteria and favourites such as rhododendron and azaleas.  For those who are still waiting for the bulbs to come out we have daffs, crocus and primroses to name a few to add a bit of instant colour. 

We now have our new road signs up so anyone who doesn’t know we are here has no excuse now! 

Sign!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, we are lucky to have on sale a selection of beautiful and original hand made tiles by Exmoor based ceramicist Jacqueline Leighton Boyce.  Our photos don’t do the work justice but they feature an iridescent glaze which sparkles in the sunlight!  Inspired by nature each is carefully observed and delicately executed.   If you are after a unique piece of art and reasonably priced then come and see us!
