Cornwall is renowned for its magnificent gardens and the lush abundance and huge variety of flora which grows here. The colours and prints in our new collection were inspired by Cornish plants and succulents we discovered during a trip to Potager Garden, a haven which has emerged from the bramble-choked wilderness of an abandoned plant nursery.

Our botanical art competition

We want you to get creative, unleash your inner artist and create pictures of your favourite Cornish plants and gardens. How you interpret the brief is entirely up to you. You can work with charcoal, paint, photography, collage or clay – or any other material that takes your fancy.
