Trevena Cross Nurseries recently had the privilege of supplying plants to the Pedn Olva Hotel in beautiful St Ives, as part of a three month hotel refurbishment.

Working with Garden Designer Jackie Michelmore of Lookout Landscapes, a range of salt and wind tolerant plants from our coastal collection were selected, for the exposed terraces at one of the best spots on St Ives coastline. Specimens including Chamaerops humilis, Cordyline australis, Yucca rostrata, and Astelias are now making a fantastic statement at the fresh faced hotel – complimenting the new interior with an equally pleasurable exterior.

A collection of unusual but striking silver/grey hanging baskets also adorn the front of the hotel, containing Astelias, Euphorbias and Hederas.

Jackie was kind enough to comment on her experience working with us…

“….what a pleasure it has been to do business with your nursery. As a garden designer based near Exeter, planning the instalation of external planting for the newly refurbished Pedn Olva in St Ives was always going to be challenging. Mark Netherway was incredibly helpful from our first meeting at Trevena right through to delivery to site. I feel confident that with the quality of plants he supplied and his help with selecting suitable species, the plants on those exposed roof terraces will look good for many years to come. The Pedn Olva now looks fabulous inside and out. St Austell Brewery is delighted.” (- Jackie Michelmore)

A great job to be involved with… the results of which will be seen and enjoyed for many seasons to come by locals and holiday makers alike!
