Cornwall Garden Society
Cornwall Garden Society is all about celebrating the unique beauty of Cornish gardens, exchanging tips, ideas and knowledge, meeting up for lectures and garden visits and, of course, making new friends.
Our origins go back to 1832 when the inaugural meeting of the Royal Horticultural Society of Cornwall was held, supported by the patronage of King William IV, who was graciously pleased to place the sum of £10. 10s. 0d (ten guineas), at the Society’s disposal. That royal support has continued and today we are very honoured to have HRH Prince Charles as our patron.
We have a packed programme of events throughout the year. In early spring we hold the Cornwall Spring Flower Show, held against the breathtakingly beautiful backdrop of Boconnoc Estate near Lostwithiel.
