Gardeners will be given the opportunity to buy plants from some of Cornwall’s finest growers at the Eden Project’s plant sale on Saturday June 18.

Plants will be on sale from top nurseries Treseders and Rosewarne as well as the People and Gardens group, who are based at Eden’s Watering Lane Nursery. There will also be a “bring and buy” element, where visitors can donate plants they have grown.

Eden’s expert horticulture team will be on hand during the day to offer help and advice for anyone wanting to learn more and there will the opportunity to bid for rare specimens in Eden’s plant auction.

Robyn Cummins, Eden’s Supporter Development Manager, said: “Lots of people come to Eden and are inspired to introduce elements of what we do here into their own gardens. Our plant sale is the ideal opportunity to pick up some top quality specimens to give your garden that special Eden touch. What’s more, our horticulture team will make sure everyone goes home armed with the knowledge of how to make sure the plants thrive.”

Eden’s plant sale takes place between 11am and 2pm on Saturday June 18 in Orange Car Park. For more information, contact Eden’s Friends team on 01726811932 or
