Changes to Covid-19 Rules July 19th 2021

By Paul, 19/07/2021 2:40 pm


As from July 19th 2021 and considering the changes to legal covid-19 restrictions Cove Garden Nursery have decided to amend our conditions of entry:

  • We ask first that if you have ANY of the symptoms of Covid-19 that you still stay away from the nursery for 10 days. These include persistent cough, fever, headache, loss of taste & smell.
  • If you have received a positive Covid Test or have been in close contact with someone who has, then please stick to the rules and self-isolate and do not under any circumstances come to the Nursery.
  • Please continue to wash your hands or sanitise prior to entering and on leaving the Nursery site. There is a washroom at the carpark end of the Glasshouse.
  • Please use contactless payment where possible. Our till and card machines will continue to be sanitised at regular intervals throughout the day but contactless is best. We will begin taking cash payments, but Card Payments are preferred.
  • We continue to ask that social distancing measures continue. Please keep a minimum of 2 meters distance from other customers and staff.
  • While the legal requirement for face coverings has ended, we politely request that customers continue to use one when in covered areas such as the shop. Our staff will continue using face coverings in enclosed areas and in situations where social distancing is hard to maintain.
  • We continue to sanitise regularly touched zones such as door handles throughout the day, but please avoid touching where practical.

We will continue to monitor the latest advice from PHE and may adjust our conditions of entry as new advice becomes available.  Please watch our Facebook, Twitter and Web Blog for details.

You can always contact us on 01398 331946

or email enquiries@covegardennursery.co.uk

Thank you for your co-operation and hopefully we can all get through this.

Keep Calm and Prepare for Gardening!

By Paul, 08/01/2021 11:29 am

Our selection of seed potatotes has arrived with more varieties than ever before. All varieties have been selected because of their suitability to South-West growing conditions but also for their flavour and yeilds. The list inclused 7 earlies (Accord, Arran Pilot, Foremost, Home Guard, Orla, Premiere and Winston) 5 Second earlies (Charlotte, Kestrel, Maris Peer, Nicola and Wilja) and 5 Maincrop (Cara, Diseiree, Picasso, Pink Fir Apple and Setanta).  All vaireties are sold loose so that you only need buy the number of tubers you require, which means you can grow more varieties. Though it is too early plant out in the garden, this is the time to begin the process of Chitting in order to get a head start on the growing season.

We also have our selection of Onion and Shallot sets for planting once the growing conditions start to improve. Varieties available are Sturon, Red Karmen and Stuttgarter in Onions and Red Sun and Golden Gourmet in Shallots.  Don’t forget our great selection of Vegetable and flower Seeds from Kings and we have Organic Veg seed from Johnsons.

With the boom in Grow Your Own last spring I’m sure demand will be brisk this season too, so now is the time to start planning the veg plot to make the best things.

Devon Grown Christmas Trees 2020

By Paul, 27/11/2020 3:08 pm

We now have our Fresh cut, Devon grown Christmas trees available and it seems that customers are eager to start the festivities early this year. There are both Nordman Fir (non-drop) and Traditional Norway Spruce available as well as potted trees. Sizes available are up to about 10ft tall for both types. As with everything we are operating in a Covid-safe manner to ensure maximum protection of saff and customers (see our opening times page for details). Local delivery of Christmas trees can be arranged, give us a call for details.

To get the best from your tree we recomment cutting about 3cm from the bottom of the trunk and standing the tree overnight in a bucket of clean water. The cooler the space allocated for teh tree the better, so turn down low any adjacent radiators. Use a stand that will also hold some water and keep this topped up with clean water only (take care with regards to electrics).

The Nursery is now open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday and Sundays 10am to 4pm.

Seed Potatoes 2020

By Paul, 06/01/2020 7:01 pm

Wow, it’s that time of year again, Seed Potatoes have arrived. As usual we have carefully selected the varieties that should perform well in the South-Wests often challenging conditions.  Within the 15 varieties that we stock you will find a good range of blight and slug resistant varieties. We balance the overall pest and disease resistance with the need to have good flavour and decent yields. We do this by, not only assesing the information available, but listening to our customers and their experiences. We are happy to offer advice on planting and growing your crop so that you may have a positive expereince. All our varieties are sold loose enabling you to buy only what you need, particularly useful if you only have a small plot. You can choose between Earlies, Second Earlies and Main crop varieties but don’t get put off by the termanology as all this means is the length of time from planting to when they are ready to harvest. We can also find you some great choices for different cooking preferences such as Jacket spuds or Salad and New Potatoes. Planting in the ground would start until April (unless you live in a very mild area or are brave enough to risk it) but you can get a headstart by “Chitting” your seed potatoes. They have all they need in the tuber to make this start by placing them in a frost free location out of direct sunlight to allow them to make short shoots ready to plant out once the danger of hard frost has subsided. Growing potatoes can be very rewarding so come along soon and let us help you make the right choice for planting.

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.
