Countdown to the ‘Chelsea of the West’ at its new venue
The Cornwall Garden Society’s March Lectures will be delivered by woodland garden specialist, Kenneth Cox, drawing the 2018/2019 lecture series to a close.
Where better to celebrate the joys of spring than Cornwall with its rich horticultural heritage, sub-tropical microclimate, beautiful blooms and fabulous flora?
Our members have some truly beautiful and interesting gardens. Take a look to see some of the wonderful things growing.
You can take out CGS membership as an individual or as a family and there are lots of benefits.
For this month’s lectures we will be joined by Alan Power. Join us at The Alverton, Tregolls Road, Truro from 7:30pm, to learn all about his time working at Stourhead
Inspired by his mother to follow a career in horticulture and arboriculture, Alan has worked in and managed some of the most beautiful gardens and estates in the country, notably Mount Stewart in Northern Ireland, Hidcote Manor in Gloucestershire and Stourhead in Wiltshire.
He has collaborated with the Gardeners’ World team on many occasions; presented on BBC Radio 4; co-presented British Gardens in Time on BBC4, and has lectured across Europe and North America.
In 2016, Alan was presented with an Honorary Doctorate by Writtle University for his outstanding contribution to horticulture.
