DEVON'S THE GARDENER'S REST NURSERY IS A GARDEN LOVER'S OASIS
Located on the Devon border, The Gardener's Rest nursery gardens are now open for business for the Spring and Summer seasons, to those who live both near and far.
Tina Walters has run The Gardener's Rest nursery since 2013, which also hosts her two safari tents as a glamping site Daisy Meadows, near the Blackdown Hill's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Devon.
Situated in 2.5 acres of grounds just 2 minutes from junction 27 M5, the area is often called "The Gateway to Devon" and The Gardener's Rest nursery is all about getting back to nature, surrounded by flowers, wildlife and nature.
The Gardner's Rest and Daisy Meadows are family businesses and Tina enjoys both the nursery and glamping aspects of the business. She says: ‘We created Daisy Meadow's safari tents for those nursery for those who love being outside, and The Gardener's Rest is for those who appreciate wildlife and wild flowers.We have also created a sensory garden for those who cannot see so well, but who want to sit and smell or feel the flowers.
‘We grow vegetable plants and sell free range eggs from our chickens. Locals often pop in for their plants and a cup of tea and piece of cake, which is wonderful. We are delighted to be hosting an Easter Sunday high teaat£12.95, with a free chocolate egg, and hot cross buns.'
As well as being a place to explore, Tina is also hosting events for gardening-lovers. On 22 April at noon, Tina is holding a talk about garden planting. This talk also takes place on 6 May. The Gardener's Rest will also be holding a ‘Bedding Extravaganza', in June, which Tina calls a ‘mini Chelsea Flower Show'.
Tina adds: ‘We specialise in Devon-grown perennials shrubs, roses, and bedding plants. In particular, our hanging baskets are popular and we create 250 each year for Cullompton town and the surrounding pubs and houses.'
Tina also runs The Gardeners' Rest Tea Room called The Potting Shed, which sells eggs from Daisy Meadow's own hens, as well as homemade cake and tea and coffee.
