This Christmas Wimborne-based Trehane is offering a choice of three very special gift ideas, each highly individual and each created by a family business nationally renowned for the quality of its products.
For a traditional Christmas with a twist, camellia ‘Yuletide’ will not only appeal to gardeners but everyone in search of the striking red flowers and dark green foliage we associate with the festive season. Perfect to grow outdoors in pots, as its name suggests Yuletide flowers over the festive period and its cut blooms will also last for several weeks in water.
Yuletide offers a real ‘wow factor’ and as Trehane is the UK’s leading authority on camellias you know you’ll be giving a quality plant when you order. Despatched direct from the nursery in a specially designed gift box, Yuletide comes in a 21/2 litre pot and costs £25 inc P&P.
The ultimate grow your own
Taking the increasing interest in ‘grow your own’ market to new levels Trehane is recommending another camellia, Camellia sinensis as the perfect gift for food buffs.
Commonly known as the tea plant, this pretty white flowering camellia with a light scent originates from the tea plantations and all forms of tea are made from harvesting and drying its tender leaf tips.
For Christmas Trehane is offering a 2 litre plant, together with a packet of tea from the neighbouring Dorset Tea Company and full tea-making instructions for £21.50.
Alongside its stunning camellia range Trehane also grows thousands of blueberry plants. It sells their fruit and produce across the country under the Dorset Blueberry Company brand.
This Christmas they are launching a sensational new chocolate blueberry brownie, which has already received rave reviews from tasters at recent food shows. Gooey on the inside with plump, tasty dried blueberries and a slight crunch as you bite, this is a box of indulgence sure to earn you brownie points from any recipient! Sixteen chocolate blueberry brownies cost just £16.99 inc P&P, and arrive packaged in true country style.
