A Little About Us

Mark Orchard, a Cornishman, founded Cedar Croft Nurseries in St Tudy in 1990. After studying Commercial Horticulture with brassica expert and lecturer Bill Herring at Cornwall College, Mark knew at 18 that he wanted to grow plants and Christmas trees, deriving immense satisfaction from seeing things grow. With the support of his family and his dog Jess, Mark started planting Christmas trees and holly on land adjacent to the B3266 glasshouses, along with a focus on vegetable and bedding plant cultivation, earning Cedar Croft a great reputation for quality plants and trees.

Cedar Croft Nurseries offers greenhouse rentals and can arrange specific storage containers. A pop-up Christmas Shop sells decorations, holly, mistletoe, and foliage, while logs and coal are sold throughout the year. The premises offer easy parking and accessibility, with investment made into wheelchair- and mobility scooter-friendly paths.
