Cedar Croft Nursery Christmas Trees

We have been working on a wonderful project  - marketing Cedar Croft Nurseries who grow and sell Christmas Trees.

Corrnishman, Mark Orchard, founded Cedar Croft Nurseries at St Tudy in 1990. Mark had just left Cornwall College where he had studied Commercial Horticulture with Bill Herring, brassica expert and lecturer. At the age of 18 years of age he knew what he wanted to do:

“I wanted to grow plants and tree. I have always got immense satisfaction from seeing things grow, and helping people select the best plans for their gardens. Even from an early age when I was at Penrice School in St Austell I decided that is what I would like to do” .

Mark had a lot of family support. With dog Jess for company and joined by his nephew Joe Brandon, Mark started planting Christmas trees and holly in 1991 on land next to the glasshouses on the B3266. The nursery business focussed on vegetables and bedding plants with Cedar Croft building up a great reputation for high-quality plants and trees.

Cedar Croft Nurseries have a number of greenhouses for rent and can arrange specific storage containers. A pop up Christmas Shop sells Christmas decorations, holly, mistletoe and foliage. Logs and coal are sold all year. It is easy to park and most areas are easily accessible with specific investment into paths suitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters. Christmas Trees Cedar Croft developed the business so that the whole family can participate in choosing their tree. As well as delighting families Mark sells his trees to hotels, including St Moritz and Watergate  Bay; businesses including Sharps Brewery and towns including Tregony. Mark has also donated 10 trees to Children's Hospice SW.

There are a range of species grown that include:

• the traditional Norway Spruce

• the needlefast Nordmann fir

• the Noble fir

• the Fraser fir

• the Serbian fir

• the Orientalis fir

• the Grandis fir

There are a wide variety of colours, shades and needles shapes and sizes. Trees are replanted immediately and continuously. This year Mark will plant around 3,000 more trees in this next few months. Cedar Croft Nurseries are truly a sustainable business and carbon positive.
