6th - 9th August 2016
Last years event saw amazing show gardens providing great colour and offered visitors the chance to talk to the experts from the city's Parks Team and buy some great local produce from the other stallholders on offer.
Turo City Parks Department will be busy at work hanging baskets from the 31 May, preparing beds and planting beautiful displays. There are 600 floral displays, of which over 300 are funded by Totally Truro, the city's Business Improvement District (BID) are now on display in all corners of the city. Many of which are hanging proudly on shop fronts, perched as beautiful boxes and are wild floral beds on the approach roads.
"The best part about Garden Truro is that we can bring our work with the community and Truro in Bloom into the public domain to see exactly what we do, particularly in preparation for Southwest in Bloom" Richard Budge, parks manager for Truro City Council
Truro in Bloom
Truro is a regular entrant in the South West in Bloom contest, which aims to find the country's most florally attractive towns and cities, and has had much success over the years including winning the prestigious Portman Cup and Gold Award annually since 2011 and in 2012 and 2014 winning Gold in the National Britain in Bloom finals. You can be sure that this year the Truro City Council Parks Department will be putting every effort into securing another prize.
With bright show gardens, colourful stalls and experts on hand; Truro's biannual gardening festival is definitely not to be missed!
