As glorious magnolias and rhododendrons herald the start of spring in Cornwall, we look ahead to this year's Spring Flower Show which is now a little under two months away!
We would love for you to join us at the new venue of our spring oasis within the Royal Cornwall Showground but also for you to take part in our competitive classes.
With over 150 classes from specimen blooms to floral art and everything in between, there's a class for everyone to enter and enjoy.

We look forward to seeing you in April.
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.
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.
Join us at St Mellion International Resort, Saltash at 2:30pm
