All systems are go at Heritage Gardens HQ in the run up to the two-day event on Saturday and Sunday (6 and 7 April). We're gathering our best garden gifts and planters to host on our 6m x 6m stand on the lawn at Boconnoc House near Lostwithiel with a gazebo in place just in case the weather doesn't act in our favour!
The show, dubbed Cornwall's answer to the Chelsea Flower Show, attracts around 10,000 visitors and is one of the first celebrations of spring in the gardening world as buyers, retailers, landscapers and designers from all over flock to witness the spectacular offerings and gain inspiration.
Among those followers are over 100 specialist growers and trade exhibitors from across the UK, including of course Heritage Gardens. We will be nestled in alongside some very prestigious businesses from the surrounding area but expect to stand out for our forward-thinking online-only strategy and our unusual products.
We'll be looking to secure even more orders from our loyal commercial customers and also building on our trade following with plenty of orders to add to our recent furniture deal with the National Trust's Beningborough Hall near York.
There are some high profile names attending the event, which will be opened by broadcaster and horticulturalist Roy Lancaster on Saturday morning and we will as always be excited to see who wins the Garden of the Year award!
PS Make sure you make the most of our 15% discount on all Garden Plants (PLANTS15) and 10% off the entire Heritage Garden shop using HERIT10 at the checkout.
Happy Spring everyone!
