Making way for new shop extensionMay 23, 2017
In case you notice the change and are curious about what’s happening on your next visit… we thought we’d keep you up to date. Towards the end of last week the hedge alongside the shop was removed in preparation for a new shop extension to begin!
Plans to add a new bay onto the existing shop will give the shop team more room to create imaginative and attractive displays, particularly more impressive ‘seasonal displays’, like those we strive to create at Christmas.
The team have worked their magic in past Christmases but will have the potential to grow the display and create something truly spectacular with festive lights and decorations with the extra room!
Change and development (in keeping with Trevena Cross roots and what it stands for) are an important part of business growth, keeping up with the times, and making sure we continually improve our offering for our customers, aiming to constantly exceed their expectations.
With the very first phase now complete…watch for news of phase two starting soon!
Trio Pots – a simple solution to summer colourMay 9, 2017
Perfect for some simple, quick summer colour, with all the hard work of coordinating plants and colours done for you! Trio Pots combine three carefully chosen patio plants in one pot, so all you have to do is plant it out (a pot up to 15″ in diameter will probably suit best), for a great summer display. Larger planters/pots/baskets will take two,three or even more trios but, the combination of 6+ plants will create a magnificent spectacle for the season ahead.
Priced at £2.50 each when you buy four or more, or £3.00 when purchased individually, Trio Pots are also a really cost effective way of populating the patio with colour!…And they’re not just for novices – garden centre owner Graham uses them himself around a central focal point in pots outside his house.
Find them in our undercover plant area next to the shop on your next visit!

Why choose Trevena Cross bedding plants?May 9, 2017
Every supermarket, convenience store, DIY chain and ‘discount’ shop seems to dabble in seasonal bedding plants these days… and you’d be forgiven for thinking that they’re all offering the same product, so why not just go for the cheapest offer or multi-buy?! Well quite right, you don’t want to be ripped off, value for money is crucial, but just make sure what you’re buying really is giving you that.
BEDDING PLANTS ARE NOT ALL THE SAME. We can’t explain exactly how the thousands of bedding packs come to be on trolleys in other shops in the area, but we can share a few facts about our own Trevena Cross bedding, which stands it apart from the competition.
The bedding plug varieties selected for our bedding packs are carefully cherry picked by Trevena Cross owner, and plant expert Graham, from specialist nurseries across the country, for incomparable quality and range. These plants are grown to display lasting colour and vigour throughout the season, and as such can be classed in a different league from bedding sold at other establishments, which is often grown from low grade seed abroad, and then shipped over in huge quantities for sale – climate shocked – en mass.
All Trevena Cross bedding plants are grown in highly recommended, premium Humax Multipurpose Compost to ensure superior, lasting growth, and are personally looked after and nurtured by the Trevena Cross nursery team until they become established enough to come down to the garden centre for sale. The range of bedding plants we are able to offer here far exceeds the ‘dabbling’ alternative shops have to settle for. Plants are our thing and we keep them the ‘stars’ of the show – not an insignificant sideline that only appears when the date is right or the sun starts shining!
Beyond this, the ‘plant people’ that we have here at Trevena are on hand to guide you/offer any assistance required regarding your bedding plant choices or potting up queries. Get the most from your spring and summer patio colour with advice from the experts!
Offering excellent value for money, all Trevena Cross bedding packs are priced at just £2.99 each.
