RHS Lecture

June 14 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

After the spectacular spring floral displays there is a temptation to assume that there is ‘nothing much’ to see in Cornish woodland gardens in summer. The
styrax family extends the flowering season.

Caerhays now has a collection of nearly 30 species/cultivars of styrax, flowering June. Some are very new to UK cultivation.

The talk will examine the origins/history of the Caerhays collection as well
as advise on care/propagation. The garden tour will visit each species
growing/flowering in the garden including rare Styrax odoratissimus and Styrax serrulatus. Attendees will be invited to return in the autumn to collect their own seeds.
