Cedar Croft Nurseries

Chocolate Dog Marketing Services have been working with local business Cedar Croft Nurseries for three years. For us Christmas starts in June when we start working on the marketing plan.

We have worked on all aspects of the business. Putting in place the foundations from branding to digital with compelling copy and creative campaigns.With such a wonderful theme PR opportunities have been many. Articles have been placed in the Cornish Guardian, Cornwall Today, North Cornwall Advertiser and many more. Mark is a generous supporter of local fundraising events and has helped with the local Mistletoe Fairs, donating trees for various charities and supporting Cornwall Wildlife Trust. 

What a story

Mark Orchard is a happy man who loves Christmas. Mark bought the nursery at St Tudy in 1990 when he was 18 years of age with help from his parents and has spent many years planting a range of Christmas trees. Now with over 25,000 Christmas Trees from Nordmanns to Noble firs, to lesser known but equally beautiful Fraser Fir, Grandis, White Pine and Blue Koreana, the winter tree wonderland is truly amazing. Its also an all year rounf business as trees need careful maintenance to be in tip top shape for Christmas.

In 2016 Mark developed a pop up shop selling all kinds of Christmas decorations and invested in another 6 acres, bought from St Tudy resident, Mrs Caroline Lyle who has lived in the village for 40 years.

Cedar Croft Nurseries has developed a great reputation for quality Christmas trees combined with customer care that is second to none.

Many are chosen by hotels and businesses and include the National Trust to Tregony, from St Moritz to Fifteen to Sharps Brewery - there is a perfect tree for every home and business.

Located at Hengar Lane on the B3266 near St Tudy, and it is easy to find and to park.

This year the Christmas shop has been expanded and Mark and his team are stocking a great range of decorations, lights, tinsel and novelties as well as the well-known, Haywards Cider Farm’s Cornish apple juice and mulled cider.

Mark attends the Christmas exhibition in Yorkshire in February to make sure everyone a great choice of wonderful decorations, lights and collectables.

As Mark Orchard, owner and grower said:

“My trees are my pride and joy. Grown with love you can wander round my winter wonderland and find your perfect tree. You can reserve it now and then have it cut on a date to suit you so it is perfectly fresh and the perfect size. We have a fabulous range of decorations with a great range of styles.

We have specifically made parts of our area wheelchair and mobility scooter accessible. We have lots of parking and I look forward to welcoming you to Cedar Croft Nurseries”

Christmas certainly starts here and this year in 2017 Mark is open from 7th october from 10am to 4 pm every day, closing at noon on Christmas Eve.
