Forget Black Friday! It’s all about Festive Thursday!November 23, 2016
The first three Thursdays of December (1st, 8th, 15th December), we’ll be keeping the doors open and the lights on until 8pm, so that visitors get a chance to see Trevena Cross light displays in all their glory…whilst enjoying a festive atmosphere filled with music, shopping, mince pies, mulled wine, and of course some great bargains!
From 5-8pm we’ll be offering 20% OFF all shop goods*… that’s everything inside the shop! Come along for some Christmas retail therapy – pick up the last of your decorations and lights, and of course some beautiful gifts for the whole family in our extensive gift department. From gorgeous toys for the under 5’s, to unique accessories for the home and individual, you won’t fail to pick up something just ‘a little bit different’.
Plus enjoy some live musical cheer with performances from local groups!
1st December – Penzance Youth Wind Band 5.45pm – 7.15pm
8th December – Mounts Bay Singers 6.30pm – 7.30pm
15th December – TBC
The Garden Kitchen Cafe will also be open for that scrummy mince pie and glass of mulled wine – or perhaps a slice of one of their infamous cakes with a hot cuppa. Should you fancy something a little more hearty they’ll also be serving up one of their popular homemade soups and a winter warmer main dish, especially selected for the late opening evenings.
So come along and let us help you get in the festive spirit with a fun-filled evening!
*Offer excludes all real potted and cut Christmas trees.
“On the Six Days of Christmas… at Trevena Cross”November 22, 2016
With the goal to be the most memorable grotto experience for children in the area, this year’s charity Santa’s Grotto at Trevena Cross Nurseries, is the result of boundless imagination, creativity and hard work. Opening for the first time on the garden centre’s first of three BIG Christmas weekends, on the 3rd and 4th December (from 11am), it promises to really capture the magic of Christmas – especially when visitors will be warmly welcomed by a very special chatty guest, before they reach the big man himself!
As last year, the success of the grotto would not be possible without the support of Helston-Lizard Rotary Club, who are volunteering their services again this year to help make the grotto possible. Visits to the grotto will be charged at £5 per child, to include a lovely gift from Santa, and with all proceeds donated to several designated local Cornish charities, including Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust and Cornwall Leukaemia Trust.
On all three weekends, (3rd & 4th, 10th & 11th, 17th & 18th December) the grotto experience will be complemented by a Christmas tree forest, a wonderful undercover Christmas Market (10am-4pm) made up of around 50 local businesses/traders selling quality food, drink and a massive mix of crafts; live music, delicious food inside (in the Garden Kitchen Café) and out, and magnificent displays of lights, sculptures, gifts, decorations, snow, face painting…and the list goes on.
An ideal outing for the whole family, with free entry, free parking and good disabled access; plus a perfect opportunity to pick up the all-important Christmas tree too – with Norway Spruce trees up to 7ft high from only £20 each, and Nordmann Fir trees up to 7ft high, from only £25 each.
For more details about the three weekends please visit Trevena Cross Nurseries Facebook page.

Magic GrassesNovember 8, 2016
Grasses are looking magic at the moment! Great additions to the garden at this time of year, when many other plants aren’t looking their best. These gems really make the most of the autumn breeze as they rustle and wave…
We have a great variety – 64 varieties to be exact! – to choose from, in an array of wonderful colours and sizes. From Pennisetum to Libertia, Stipa to Carex, Miscanthus to Ophiopogon… and it’s our plant of the month too – find out more here…
