Here Be Dragons!

By Paul, 25/03/2015 9:36 pm

It is over 3 years since St George had a dragon to fight after Mildred his previous foe was taken from him. http://www.middevongazette.co.uk/…/story…/story.html. The new creation born under the light of  the partial eclipse is fiestier than ever but still in need of a new name. If you have a good name please let us know, your choice could be the new dragon of Cove!

Dragon Stolen from Cove Garden Nursery

By Helen, 27/09/2011 10:42 am

Have You Seen this Dragon?

We are very upset to make the discovery that Wicked Willows dragon has been stolen some time last night.  Anyone who drives past regularly will be familiar with George and the Dragon and they have become a local landmark.  The dragon is at least 7ft long with a 6ft wing span so who ever stole it must have had a large vehicle to put him in.  If anyone noticed anything suspicious or have seen him please let us know as we want him back.  George will miss her!

1st prize winners at the Mid Devon Show

By Helen, 26/07/2010 9:32 am

1st prize winners at the Mid Devon Show!  We are very proud to say the Flower and Garden Marquee won first prize for its category and we didn’t know it was being judged till the day!   Seeing as it was our first time there we are really encouraged and happy that our hard work paid off.  Joolz and Woody worked like troopers throughout Friday and Saturday to help make the stand look awesome.

Joolz made the willow arch behind the back of the stand and of course the beautiful willow peacock with my glass feathers.  Unfortunately she couldn’t be there on the day but  Woody was a star assistant on the stand and also bravely gave a Willow demonstration to a captive audience!  I should mention his willow Heron and Imp were part of our display too.  The plants looked amazing although they never thought we would never get them all on the table!  We would like to congratulate our fellow exhibitors, Tiverton Garden Club, Bampton Flower Arrangers and the florists Mayflower of Tiverton who had a lovely stand of flower arrangements, and all the others who were there.  A special mention goes to Mary Tucker who with her organizing skills brought us all together and deserved to receive the cup.  We met lots of great people this weekend…So heres to the next show but not till next year!

Cove at Mid Devon Show at Hartnoll Farm, Tiverton on 24th July

By Helen, 22/07/2010 8:09 am

Yes we are having a stand in the Plants and Garden Marquee and the theme is Grassland and Meadows so we have interpreted it as  Magic Meadow!  We will be sharing with Wicked Willows and have combined our efforts to bring all our creative skills into one place.  Joolz from Wicked Willows has made a beautiful willow peacock and I have made the ‘eye’ of the feathers out of glass and I have to say it looks stunning, no photos to show yet, you’ll have to come and see it!  As well as that Woody from Wicked Willows will be with me on the day working on a willow hare and showing us his weaving skills.  I haven’t yet mentioned the plants,  Paul has been working hard on putting together a display that best reflects the theme and has chosen a selection of grasses, hostas, penstemon, heucheras amongst others, a little taster in the accompanying photo.  So if you are coming to the Mid Devon Show come and say hello, mention the blog and you will receive a voucher for 10% discount off plants at Cove Garden Nursery!   Hope to see you can’t wait!
