Our famous Tregothnan tea chests are now officially recognised as the largest in the World! Our tea chest is a firm favourite at the Royal Cornwall Show where last week we served over 3,000 cups of British tea from Tregothnan, and many of those with a scone and cream on the side…

The RAF Falcons parachute display team, pictured above with our foliage-filled Spitfire aeroplane, wowed crowds around the arena with their daredevil display, and then dropped into see us for a cup of Churchill’s Finest tea afterwards.

The Royal Cornwall Show, which ran from Thursday 9th until Saturday 11th June, was also a great success for the Tregothnan Driving Friesian Horses – our horse and carriage pairing who entered into three classes at the show. Prizes were scooped in Private Driving, Concourse D’Elegance and the Cornish Class where we were placed 1st, gaining the overall Best Exhibit in the Championship.

The Cornwall Community Foundation joined us at our stand opposite the main arena, as Tregothnan raises awareness for the charity through the Royal Cornwall Show and makes a donation from the proceeds of the Show to help fund the community projects they are involved in.

It is a week full of celebration for all things great about Great Britain and Monday marked the start of British Flowers Week. 
This annual celebration of seasonal and locally grown cut flowers and foliage is uniting the UK and shining a spotlight on where our flowers come from. This issue is close to our hearts at Tregothnan where we only ever use flowers from our own gardens or growers.

Here are some top tips as to why British Flowers are better:

 1  British flowers are super-fresh from the farm – minimum distance for maximum vase life
 2  British flowers and foliage show the seasons to the best
 3  Many British flowers have delicious fragrance – they don’t just look pretty, they smell exquisite too.
 4  British grown flowers are excellent value for money, supplied when they are at their seasonal best.

In the heart of Cornwall, Tregothnan has been growing rare plants and trees in the garden surrounding this historic home and is of huge interest to lovers of exquisite blooms. With our incredible range of flowers here at Tregothnan and with the help of our talented local growers, we create hand-tied bouquets full of beautiful seasonal blooms. So while you won’t find us using roses in Winter, you will find scented Narcissi and Stocks gracing our hand-tied bouquets.

Our desire is to bring only the finest flowers to every Tregothnan bouquet that leaves the estate. Our skilled team of floral designers create freshness and luxury in each bouquet, resulting in a display fit for Tregothnan itself.
