Trevena Cross Nurseries
We took a drive to Trevena Cross Nurseries over at Breage ...We have been coming to this wonderful place for years.....they have all the most exciting plants ...dessert , outback , savanna , rain forest or jungle..in fact there is a distinctly Jurassic feel in the shade tunnel ! The plant displays are the best ever this season ,whoever planned all this should be really proud of themselves .
They've had a huge delivery of Agaves and Tree Ferns . Dicksonia antarctica truly magnificent specimens in tubs , or you can buy them as stumps ....I was delighted to buy a small one for £3.99 ! That is a bargain ! ...and they soon grow !
I couldn't resist this Podophyllum "Spotty Dotty " and Nick kindly went and found me a slightly better one .
I bought a couple of Mountain Ash saplings ..they were reduced to half price (all the hedging saplings ) To plant out along the boundary between our meadow and the neighbours field to encourage and indeed welcome wildlife...and then I went to have a look at the new Cactus display .....
What is this ?
.....and found this ....except it has lost it's label , so I have no idea what it might be . Is it a Kalenchoe or an Adromischus ? Does anyone know please ?
Anyway I love it ! I bought a couple of nice shallow terracotta pots..I'm in the process of re-potting my cacti , giving each one a bit of pampering and loving them again .
On the way back , we stopped at the top of the cliffs above Poldhu to rest and watch the waves .
....then home to cut the grass .
