Trevisker was born after a night in the pub in 1997 when Mark signed up to do a whole pub summer flower display.
He awoke the next morning (a little groggily) to the realisation that he had no plants, no experience in planting a hanging basket, nowhere to grow them and no money!!
Siân at this point was swanning around Australia having a marvellous time and being no help whatsoever.
Anyway, it all worked out fine and dandy and Trevisker was born with a passion for well grown plants, beautiful things and family values.
Mark and Siân got married, grew some children and grew Trevisker .
Now it’s home to lots of other like-minded businesses and an awesome café too.
Not only do we have green fingers here at Trevisker but we are a seriously GREEN garden centre too!
Did you know some of our electric comes from our own solar panels? Our water comes from our own bore hole and we reuse or recycle all of our plant pots and compost all of our waste (of which there isn’t much!).
We grow our plants as naturally as possible using no heat , minimal chemicals and a good peat free compost.
Our plants are chosen for their suitability to our Cornish climate (what this really means is their tolerance for being battered by the wind!) and around lots of these are grown right here on site.
Plants grown like this grow up to be strong and tolerant to changeable weather conditions, pests and diseases. Everything else is sourced as locally as possible, in fact everything in our garden centre is as local as possible (including us- we walk to work!).
