Perennial Nursery-foxgloves - St Davids

Gardening Days and Afternoon Tea in St Davids

With winter still some way to go, I anticipate given I write this for you in late January, it is cheering to think ahead to the flowers and greenery to come. Daffodils in March, tulips in April and fresh greens to jumble into bright salads in February?


At the Perennial we are thinking ahead for all these seasonal treats.  Pots of bulbs have been planted up for sale to cheer your homes inside and out flowering as the Spring marches towards us. Organic salads and stir-fry greens from our pollytunnels are still being supplied throughout winter to shops and restaurants in St Davids, so easy to pick up locally.



Spring Gardening Days

It is not just about produce and pots at the Perennial – this spring and ongoing through the year we are offering Gardening Days for small numbers of people to come and join us for a few hours of hands-on garden experience. If you dont have a garden … come and join us, you can borrow ours and learn how to bring greenery into your life with indoor and outdoor pots.

If you want to learn a little more about managing your patch…come and join us. If you want the guilt-free pleasure of pruning someone else’s tangled shrubs…come and join us.

Thursday afternoons from 2pm (starting March 7th)

Please phone/email ahead to book a place and discuss the programme.




Fortnightly Garden Club

We are running a local Garden Club fortnightly on Tuesday afternoon to look at particular horti-skills of sowing, propagation, design, compost making and other core skills for developing and maintaining gardens that give pleasure and produce (contact Gill for more details).

Afternoon Tea for Mothers Day?

Perennial Garden and Shop will open from March 29th Tuesdays to Sundays.  For Mothering Sunday we will have afternoon teas which can be booked ahead for an indulgent treat.

Co-owners of the Perennial Gardens and Cafe in St Davids. Gill and Pippa were inspired to set up a new business together, to enjoy the challenges of putting life-learnt skills into practical use, putting something back into the local community through employing and training younger staff, adding to the St Davids 'visitor offer' and supporting the best of local food producers.

Gill began with a career in academic botany in various parts of the world, has been a gardener all her adult life, a garden designer in Pembrokeshire for the last two decades, and used to work at The Perennial Nursery as the 'Saturday girl'. Pippa has a first degree in botany and was diverted into business and the economics of healthcare in earlier life. She has an unruly and interesting garden, keeps bees and cats, and loves a challenge.
