Cornwall Spring Flower Show
6th-7th April 2019 – the new venue, The Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge
Described by The Daily Telegraph as one of the best flower shows in the UK, the show is the highlight of Cornwall’s horticultural calendar, welcoming gardening experts and novices alike from Land’s End to the Tamar and beyond.
The Competitive Classes gives everyone the opportunity to view the county’s finest floral specimens that have been entered to compete. Within the exhibition halls, there will be the beautiful floral art and floral photography exhibits and classes too.
For the first time, a dedicated members’ area will offer a central hub to the CGS Spring Flower Show; where members can meet, share information, and gain horticultural inspiration and ideas from leading experts. All show visitors will be able to view all of this, while browsing the wide range of trade stands for horticultural shopping; finding that very necessary item for their garden and gardening pastime.
The finest local food producers will provide food and drinks for everyone to enjoy in a dedicated marquee with ample seating to enjoy a welcome cup of tea or coffee.
The Cornwall Garden Society has been developing a growing emphasis on gardening for children to help develop the next generation of horticultural experts. The show has been able to call upon Tam Pemberton and Perennial Harvest to lead this burgeoning aspect to the CGS Spring Flower Show which provides activities, competitions and entertainment for all ages.
Gardening Interest and Inspiration
The CGS Spring Flower Show provides gardening inspiration for everyone to enjoy, from impressive floral displays to interactive sessions. For example, you will be able to participate in a Gardeners’ Questions at the central stage with seating space in the heart of the exhibition hall. These interactive sessions are designed to inform and entertain all our guests.
While Cornwall has a proud heritage of some of the leading gardens and horticultural expertise, there will also be the opportunity for gardeners both great and small to compete against each other.
