Low plant stocks not a problem here at TrevenaFebruary 14, 2016
Following reports from local customers and industry contacts, we’ve become aware of the fact that plant stock levels are low at various local garden centres (and most likely those further afield) – something we’re really pleased and proud to report is not the case here at Trevena Cross Nurseries.
While many garden centres rely on external suppliers to source their plants, something that can be tricky as well as expensive to do at this time of year, we do not have this problem, growing more than 90% of our own plants on site in our nursery from seed or plant plugs. Plants have never been scarce here at Trevena Cross and never will be, as there are always tens of thousands of plants being grown on, and becoming readily available in the large 30 acre nursery, or down on the garden centre where they come to the end of their journey with us…. and start their journey with you.
Trevena Cross Owner Graham Jeffery comments:
“We’ve had customers visit recently, very surprised to discover the copious numbers of plants that we have available here at the moment. Having done the rounds of other local garden centres, we’re apparently unique, able to meet every plant need where others aren’t. Growing our own stock is a real advantage, for so many reasons, but being able to assure a consistent supply of plants to our customers whenever they require them is certainly one of the most important”.

Compost ExplainedFebruary 10, 2016
Our TOP COMPOST PICKS include a number that are BRAND NEW introductions to Trevena Cross, and we’re very excited about the results you can achieve with them.
‘Professional’composts, often used by the trade for growing, including us here in Trevena Cross Nursery, they could be classed ‘premium’ products but ones that we think are certainly worth the investment, and could be used alongside other regular composts in your garden.
We highly recommend all that follow – please ask if you’d some advice about which compost will work for you and your plants in your garden.
Trevena Cross presents cheque to The CoveFebruary 8, 2016
Along with the Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard, we have helped to bring the Macmillan Cancer Support Cove Centre at the Royal Cornwall Hospital another step closer with a terrific donation of £2,460 – which we presented to the cause here at Trevena Cross last week.
It’s the result of our first ever charity ‘winter wonderland’ event, supported by members of Helston-Lizard Rotary, who volunteered as Santas for children visiting the Christmas Grotto.
Trevena Cross Owner Graham Jeffery said, “Just over 500 children visited along with parents and relatives which was far more than we expected and meant we’ve been able to give such a sizeable donation to The Cove. It was a terrific success and we’re already planning a bigger event for Christmas 2016!”
The Cove Macmillan Support Centre will provide a hub for support and advice for people with cancer and their families and friends. The Appeal has a target of £1 million.
