Back in Truro to colour the quayJuly 29, 2014
Garden Truro – Wednesday 30th July – Saturday 2nd August 2014
9.30am – 5.00pm daily
Exhibitors since the start, when just a few gazebo type structures were erected on Lemon Quay for half a dozen enthusiastic garden traders, we’re now a couple of years down the line and tomorrow we’ll be back on the Quay for the third, and biggest Garden Truro event yet.
In excess of 25 stands, a combination of trading space and show gardens, will bring green fingered fun to Lemon Quay from tomorrow, for four days. Colourful flora will tempt and inspire you, with an opportunity to pick up great plant and gardening advice from the experts, not to be missed.
Whether your garden is a courtyard or a forest; whether you’re green fingered or far from it, this is an inclusive festival for all – with a guarantee of something for everyone.
And as well as plants, there will be a range of other ‘garden related’ stands to complement a feast of green fingered fun too.
So go on, pop down to Lemon Quay in Truro over the next few days – and come and say hello to us!
A Cornish nursery in summerJuly 15, 2014
It’s been a while since we posted here – many apologies. So what’s been happening during the absence?
Well summer colour has been making its mark all over the place; we went pot potty with a huge range of summer patio pots teasing every passer-by with their glorious blooms, and our trolleys of bedding plants have been dwindled down to the very last few packs (on a Buy One Get One Free promotion). The benches of wonderful patio colour have been extremely popular and as we relinquish these to your gardens across Cornwall and beyond for the rest of the summer, the remainder too go on an attractive Buy One Get One Free promotion!
We’ve made plenty of space for Cornish treasures – from the many cornish palms to the many agapanthus (almost floral symbols of the county!), ready for the many welcome visitors holidaying in the county. After all, who wouldn’t want to take a little piece of Cornwall home with them? Some of us are just lucky that we don’t have to say goodbye very often, or for very long!
We hope you’ve managed to make the most of an ‘outdoorsy summer’ so far – a glass of something cold on the patio… perhaps a BBQ… or a session with the children in the paddling pool?! However you like spending time outdoors in your garden… ENJOY! …And don’t forget us! A fabulous cake or cream tea, or spot of lunch on the cafe terrace is a great way to waste an hour or two!
