Cornwall nursery to close retail outlet

Price pressures have forced a nursery retail outlet to close.

Cornwall-based Constantine Garden Nursery is to close after two decades of trade.

The small nursery at Fir Tree Farm, Tresahor is owned by Sorcha Hitchcox, who took over the business 10 years ago.

She blamed garden centres for pricing her out of the market.

She is holding a closing down sale which will begin on Saturday, July 12 and continue until Sunday, July 27, between 10am and 5pm Monday to Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sundays.

Most plants will cost £1.50 or less, with clematis, roses and climbers available for £3.50 and a few rarities priced separately.

The nursery will continue to send out mail order via, and plants can be ordered for collection from the nursery.
