Spring at Eden
As the days grow longer, and the sun begins to shine with a little more warmth, we’re putting the long winter behind us and welcoming in the spring at Eden! You’ll find Eden awash with colour and scent. From the fabulous display of tulips, aloes and proteas blooming in our Mediterranean Biome, to the exotic ‘firework flowers’ of the Guiana Chestnut, the eccentric but beautiful flowers of the Dutchman’s Pipe plant in the Rainforest Biome and swathes of daffodils painting the outdoor landscape in wonderful sunny yellows, spring arrives in glorious technicolour at Eden!
If you fancy honing your gardening knowledge, we’re also offer a range of gardening courses which take place between September and March, taught by our own horticulturists. Choose from one-hour, half-day or full-day sessions.

This month’s lectures come from Derry Watkins as she brings us an insightful talk about unusual and Long-blooming Garden Plants
Join us at The Alverton, Tregolls Road, Truro at 7:30pm
Derry Watkins started Special Plants Nursery 30 years ago. In 1993, she won a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship to spend three months in South Africa hunting for new plants to introduce into horticulture. In 1995 she returned, seed collecting in the Drakensberg. Since then, she has collected plants in many parts of the world and is renowned for many new plant introductions.
In 1996, Derry and her husband bought a derelict barn to convert into a house, and during the last 20 years, they have converted the fields into an amazing garden, which has featured in major horticultural journals and on television.
Derry also teaches at The English Gardening School and is the author of two books: The Complete Greenhouse Book and Sunspaces.
