Heligan Daffodil Show 15 – 18 March

The finest of Cornish daffodils will be celebrated at this year's Heligan’s Daffodil Show.

Along with flowers from Heligan, two of Cornwall’s top daffodil growers Fentongollan and Ron Scamp will be providing an array of gorgeous blooms. There’ll be over a hundred varieties on display, with some dating back to the 1800s.

In addition, there will be on display some historic photographs of the flower trade on the Isles of Scilly from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The trade in British-grown daffodils began on the islands and Alasdair Moore, our gardens & estate manager, will be on hand at 2pm Sat & Sun to give an informal talk about the history of Scilly, its flower trade and these remarkable images.
