SUMMER BEDDING

By Paul, 02/05/2013 8:02 am

We now have ready a large selection of summer flowering bedding plants just in time for the May Bank Holiday weekend. You’ll still have to keep an eye out for any late frosts, especially for tender options such as Begonias & Marigolds but there are still plenty of hardier options if you want to get started but live in a frost pocket. These include Alyssum, Antirrhinums, Mimulus, Cineraria Silver Dust & Stocks, all of which can stand a frost once hardened off. Even Petunias & Geraniums will tolerate light ground frosts once hardened off. If you are lucky enough to live in a milder spot or be able to offer plants a little additional protection with fleece or plant up containers undercover, then there is a wide range available. You don’t have to make elaborate bedding schemes like the ones you see in municipal parks, spectacular though they are, a few bright bedding plants in herbaceous & shrub borders can enliven these spots.  We are optomistic that the weather will be better this summer than last year and what better way to make the most of your outdoor spaces that quick growing, colourful Bedding plants!

Hanging Baskets Made to Order

By Paul, 25/04/2013 10:16 am

We are making up customer orders for colourful summer baskets, pots and wall planters. This year we have an even greater selection of basket plants to chose from in almost any colour combination you can think of.

Award winning Baskets supplied by Cove Garden Nursery

We can advise on planting for a particular aspect for example full sun or shade. We can make the baskets up and look after them for a few weeks until they have rooted in & the danger of frosts have past by the end of May. Then you can hang them up and (providing you care for them well) impress everyone with your beautiful colourful displays.

If you prefer to make up your own baskets them our wide selection of Tub & Basket plants are available now!

Mid Devon Show 23rd July!

By Helen, 16/07/2011 1:19 pm

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!

Midsummer?!

By Helen, 22/06/2011 10:18 am

We have just had the longest day, Wimbledon has started and Glastonbury Festival starts this weekend, so that means only one thing…RAIN!   Of course we do need it after a very dry spring and it means less outdoor watering for us and it also gives me an excuse to get into my workshop and make some bits and bobs out of glass!   I have made some larger outdoor bunting which is hanging on our Tea Tent (open on fine days!) and would look lovely draped among trees or on a pagoda, perfect for adding a festive touch to a summer Bar-B-Q!  Come and see us or give me a ring if you would like something a bit different for your garden. 

I have also been making some etched name hangers so if you are stuck for any gift ideas, get in touch with me for that too, they are ideal for a christening or birthday gift!

If you haven’t yet done your hanging baskets and patio planters we now have 25% off summer bedding, so that means 10 9cm plants including fuschias for £7.50!  Its not too late to do them and for that price you can go mad and create a riot of colours to cheer you on a rainy day!
