Cornwall is renowned for its daffodils and in the fields around Anthony the pickers are out in force. Historically the boundary between Cornwall and Devon had many varieties of the flower which used to be sent down to Covent Garden by train. This weekend it’s daffodil weekend at Cotehele House on the Cornwall border and as the daffodil is such a visual herald of Spring it’s a shame this weekend we have another bout of wintery weather arriving with snow forecast. But, not only do Cotehele have their daffodils shown in situ but they have also created an internal arch of daffodils using all their 250 varieties to hand. Here’s a picture of one of the gardeners doing final touches to last years archway.
The event is free, although normal entry fees to Cotehele apply. Open from 11-4pm this Saturday and Sunday
