Best in Show!

We are thrilled to have been a part of the winning team again as not only did the Flower and Garden Marquee win Best Special Features (all due to the lovely ladies from the flower arranging clubs) but the Marquee won  Best in Show!  This down to the skill and creativity of all the clubs and businesses in interpreting the ‘Dig for Victory’ theme.  Special mentions to the Tiverton Gardening Club, The Mayflower in Tiverton and of course the Tiverton Flower Club (amongst  all the others who made the marquee look and smell heavenly!).  It was a particularly special ‘victory’ as Mary Tucker of the Flower Club who has been co-ordinating the marquee for years is stepping down as chief organiser.  We are really pleased that all her hard work has been rewarded, it won’t be the same without her!

Mid Devon Show 23rd July!

Well midsummer has been and gone and the rush for bedding and basket plants has slowed down.  We still have some hanging baskets left so if you haven’t done them yet come and see us, they are looking beautiful!

We are also getting ready for the Mid Devon show next weekend which we are hoping will be as successful as last year.  Its a real chance for us to get creative with the plants and do something different!  We will be in the Flower and Garden Marquee again so come and see us!  Joolz of Wicked Willows will be there too and she has created something spectacular!  I have posted last years display below.

  Other news:   at some point this summer we might be able to barbeque so let me remind you that we stock the amazing Bulworthy Project charcoal which is made locally,  its the best charcoal ever, no chemicals and burns really well.  Also if you are noticing bare patches on your lawn but don’t want to buy a whole box of grass seed we now sell loose practical lawn seed from Kings seeds, so if you just want a handful come and see us!  One last thing!  We now have our own Facebook page so search for Cove Garden Nursery and come and like us!
