Family Fun at the Cornwall Garden Society Spring Flower Show

This year's Cornwall Garden Society’s Spring Flower Show is set to be another fun family event and we would love you to enter our junior competitive classes. 

There are categories for individuals up to 7 years and over 7 to 11 years, schools and community groups, and the Walk in My Shoes class for children with special educational needs. Judges will be looking for the best heritage daffodil exhibited in a vase; the best pea plant grown from seed, and the most creative display of marine-salvaged plastic in a box planted with flowers.

Shields will be presented to the winners and a trophy will be awarded to the school that best supports year-round junior horticulture at 2.30pm on Saturday 4th April.

It also includes an orchard stocked with Cornish varieties and wild flowers. The Bucknell family who own the garden often exhibit blooms in the competitive Classes at our annual Spring Flower Show.

Other features include a mini-lake, waterfall and rill on the terrace,and several plant collections, all designed to provide year-round interest. Along with thousands of planted bulbs throughout the garden, a bluebell wood runs alongside the stream pathway.
