Truro takes pride in its beautiful parks, gardens and open spaces and so to celebrate this, the Garden Truro festival co-ordinated by
BID, is returning to Lemon Quay from 6 -9th July 2016.
The Truro City Council parks team do a tremendous job throughout the year keeping our parks and gardens looking fantastic and this event brings the best of the city’s green spaces to Lemon Quay in the heart of this great little city for the public to learn more, pick up some expert tips and enjoy what is on offer.
Throughout the 4 day event there will be a garden marquee featuring a painting exhibition from local schools and exhibitors including Duchy College, The RSPB, Friends of Furniss Island, The Screech Owl Sanctuary and The Cornwall Bee Keeping Association among others.
Show gardens by Truro City Council, Trewithen Gardens, Meadowside and Burncoose Nurseries will provide great colour and vibrant activity offering 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.
In parallel to the Garden Truro festival, the South West in Bloom judges will be visiting Truro on the 8th July to judge the city’s gardens, floral displays and arrangements. Truro has achieved much success in this competition in recent years having received the prestigious Portman Cup and awarded National Britain in Bloom Finalist Runner-up in 2015.
Many of Truro’s businesses will be complementing the 350 Truro BID funded summer floral displays in the centre and joining in the green-fingered fun by dressing their shop windows with floral displays on Wednesday 6th July.
