Upcoming Events

  • Lecture: Rosy Hardy – Spring Flowering Perennials

    Join us for this evening lecture and learn about Spring Flowering Perennials by Rosy Hardy.

    7:30pm The Alverton, Tregolls Road, Truro

  • Lecture: Rosy Hardy – Right Plant, Right Place

    Rosy Hardy is an award-winning nurseryman who has grown herbaceous perennials commercially for the past 30 years. With 23 RHS Chelsea Golds to her credit, she is the RHS’s most successful female floral exhibitor.

    Rosy is also a Gold medal-winning garden designer at RHS Hampton Court and was awarded an RHS Chelsea Silver for her Brewin Dolphin Forever Freefolk garden in 2016.

    Beautiful herbaceous borders are the inspiration for her designs into which she has introduced new varieties such as Gaura Rosyjane, Gaura Freefolk Rosy and Gaura Ice Cool Rosy.

    When not staging show-stopping displays and appearing on TV, Rosy is busy growing at the Hampshire nursery she runs with husband, Robert. Her love of what she does keeps her at the top of her game.

    Join Rosy for this day time lecture on Wednesday 13th February at 2.30pm at the Penventon Park Hotel, Redruth
