Trecanna Nursery featured in BBC Gardeners' World
Welcome to the Trecanna Nursery website

We are a specialist plant nursery set on the Cornish banks of the beautiful Tamar Valley where we grow hardier South African plants including a large selection of Crocosmia, Eucomis, Tulbaghia and more... We are a mail order nursery although pre-ordered plants can be collected from our home.

Our Crocosmia plants are sent out in 9cm pots ready to plant at any time of the year with the exception of times when the ground is frozen or waterlogged. Aim to set the corms around 10cm (4") down in the soil - at this depth they are protected from winter cold and summer drought. All orders are sent out with full planting and growing tips. We don't offer dry corms as many varieties do not come back so well one dry. Enjoy your Crocosmia!

Crocosmia are currently on a 3 year trial at the RHS Garden at Wisley to assess which are the best performing varieties for gardens across the country.
