Flower power is something you can’t miss in Cornwall with gardens crammed with a profusion of colourful plants.
Even in winter the climate is so mild that buds start to appear in the hedgerows in January so by the time spring comes that passion for gardening has awakened into a spate of flower festivals. This is one of the first held in the country. The two-day event takes place in the magnificent grounds of Boconnoc House, an 18th century mansion owned by the Fortescue family, and features show gardens, horticultural trade stands and competitive classes.
The theme for 2016 will be Celebrating Cornish Excellence with a line-up showcasing Cornish talent, Cornish gardens and Cornish produce. They will be joined by a selection of the county’s best traders as well as some of the best nurseries in the country.
