Spring is here – official!

When the Cornish Magnolias flower, Spring has arrived!  Gardeners at six of the Great Gardens of Cornwall watch their champion magnolia trees as the blossom unfolds, and when all six have at least 50 blooms open, the start of Spring is officially declared.

This year, the start of Spring was on Valentine’s Day, 14th February.  Here at Morrab we’re up there with the best of them, and here are just a few of the magnificent Magnolias that have already been flowering in the Gardens for several days.
