Tree Fern Trunks Arrive at Trevena CrossJuly 11, 2017
Stocks of one of the most popular and most admired of all plants/trees we sell – the Dicksonia antarctica tree fern, have been replenished! Last week a lorry load of tree fern trunks arrived at Trevena Cross, and for a limited time only we’re able to offer them to you at a special price…
£35 per foot of trunk (instead of the usual £40 per foot) – a price that applies to trunks ranging in size from 1ft all the way up to 5ft, so suiting most gardens!
For those after something a little bigger, we have 6ft trunks available at £40 per foot… so for £240, and on the way shortly – (watch for the announcement of them landing on Trevena Cross ‘terra firma!…) giant 7ft and 8ft trunks,which will be available at £50 per foot, so for £350 and £400 respectively.
All prices mentioned apply for a LIMITED TIME ONLY while being sold as bare trunks. Once potted up in the nursery prices will rise by £5 per foot with 1ft-5ft trunks then available at £40 per foot, 6ft trunks available at £45 per foot, and 7ft-8ft trunks available at £55 per foot.
Bare trunks (LIMITED TIME ONLY):
1ft-5ft – £35 per foot
6ft – £40 per foot
7ft-8ft – £50 per foot (arrival to be confirmed)
1ft-5ft – £40 per foot
6ft – £45 per foot
7ft-8ft – £55 per foot
One great thing about the trunks – apart from the reduced price – is that they’re easy to transport – whether you’re local or visiting from afar on holiday, they’re easy to wrap and pop in the boot of the car (particularly the smaller ones!) without worrying about damaging the beautiful fronds, which you can then enjoy watching emerge from the trunk in your own garden!
Is it time to enjoy a majestic tree fern… or yet ANOTHER majestic tree fern in your garden? 😉
OPEN ALL EASTERApril 12, 2017
Easter this coming weekend… and we’ll be OPEN over the whole Easter period, including Easter Sunday (usual trading hours).

We will also have our FREE Children’s Easter Egg Hunt in operation from Thursday 13th – Monday 17th April – where children are invited to hunt the 10 hidden eggs around the garden centre, and win a lovely plant to take home and plant in the garden this spring!
Lots of plant special offers will also be up for grabs this weekend, including 3ltr Lavender Grosso (the best for Cornwall!) on at 4 for £20 (£6.95 each), and Perennial Mesembryanthemum packs (6 plants per pack) for just £1.50 per pack (normally £2.99 per pack).
Lots of bedding packs (£2.99 four-packs), all grown in our on-site nursery, will also be available for sale so that you can get busy with your pots in the garden over the long weekend!
We look forward to seeing you!

Dicksonia antarctica tree fern trunks on the way…April 19, 2016
On the way and available next month, will be a cracking range of robust Dicksonia antarctica tree fern trunks… all sizes… 1 – 7ft+ tall/long
SPECIAL OFFER AT JUST £35* A FOOT
(instead of the usual £40 a foot)
*The largest, oldest, most impressive 7ft+ specimens will be available at £45 a foot.
Dicksonia antarctica is a ‘soft tree fern’ from Australia, with large fronds. Around this time of year, last year’s growth can be seen around the edge of the trunk, with new growth/fronds visibly emerging from the centre of the trunk. These will unfold and grow towards the sun — displaying a beautifully majestic ‘frond-full’ specimen!
The trunk should be planted in a moisture retentive soil in a cool shaded position out of strong winds. Larger specimens can be hardy down to -10°C but in cold areas the crown should be protected with a mulch of bracken or straw. It should be watered freely, especially in warm weather.
