Chiswick House and Gardens announces 10th anniversary Camellia Show

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 - 11:00

Visitors can admire the rare and historic camellias at Chiswick House and Gardens' 10th Anniversary Camellia Show from 27th February to 22nd March 2020.  A gorgeous array of blooms: pink, red, white and striped can be seen in the Grade 1 listed Conservatory, within a collection of 33 different varieties, many of which are descended from the original planting in 1828. Among them is the unique Middlemist’s red, originally brought from China in 1804 by Londoner John Middlemist, a nurseryman from Shepherds Bush.

The venue's knowledgeable volunteer Garden Guides will be offering free Camellia themed short tours (approx. 35 mins) at 2pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the Camellia Show. They will give an overview of the history of the main gardens including the Italian Garden, Conservatory and its historic Camellia Collection. The tour will also include a visit to the Walled Kitchen Garden where volunteer gardeners will be preparing the garden for the season.  After the tour, visitors will also have time to view the flowering camellias at your leisure.  

Drinks receptions can also be booked in the evenings alongside this beautiful show, where guests will be able to enjoy the flowers after hours.
