Bulbs & Wild Bird Care

By Paul, 19/08/2010 10:09 pm

With the weather becoming Autumnal already, it seem appropriate to mention our new stock of Spring Flowering Bulbs.  We have a good selection to provide colour in your garden from Christmas well into next Spring. We even have some beautiful Autumn Crocus that will soon be putting on their annual display. We have several varieties of daffodils loose so that you can pick and choose at the best prices. Some great bulbs for underplanting containers & winter baskets such as Tete a Tete  Narcissus, Crocus, Muscari and of course Tulips.  For the woodland garden we have some English grown Bluebells, Anemones, Narcissus and Snowdrops (among others). If  its scent your after then is has to be Hyacinths both for the house and the garden!

The wild bird feeding season is well under way with birds building up their reserves either to ge them through the winter or to make their annual migration.  Encouraging birds to feed in your garden has to be one of the most rewarding things. Not only do you get to see these beautiful creatures up close but many have an essential part to play in controling pest populations. 

We have good stocks of wild bird feed from seed, peanuts, fat snax, sunflower seed and thistle seed & suet feasts. We also have a selection of feeders, Nest boxes and accessories.

Snowdrop in Summer!

By Helen, 15/08/2010 11:13 am

Well I’d like to say we are enjoying lovely long August  days dipping our toes into the water and drinking Pina Coladas but this being Devon and the school holidays, summer is doing what it normally does and its either raining or really windy here!  But we are not discouraged its still beautiful in Cove whatever the weather!  I hate to mention autumn but the leaves are definitely starting to change colour here,  so with that in mind if you are thinking of the new term ahead and are wondering whether to join a class at night school or learn a new skill I will be offering 1 to 1 tuition in copper foiling this autumn.  If you’ve fancied having a go I will show you how to cut glass and then assemble a panel or large sun catcher to take home with you.  Get in touch for a chat or email for details.

Talking of copper foiling I recently made a snowdrop for a shepherds hut.  The very nice people I made it for have sent me the images of it fitted in and it looks fantastic.  They are a company called ‘Dods of London’ and they will have a stand at the National Gardening Show at the Bath and West Showground in September if you want to have a look at it.   They restore shepherds huts and gypsy caravans to a very high standard and I want one!   Will link onto their site when its up and running but here is what they look like below!
