Chiswick House and Gardens are welcoming the 11th annual Camellia Show from 15 February – 26 March. The Camellia show is an event where the camellias out in the Gardens will be in full bloom and the public is invited on a free, family-friendly trail in order to explore and find them.
The trail will be available on the Chiswick House and Gardens website to download too, with a potentially ‘Covid-safe plant sale’ later in March, though this will be dependent on government guidelines and has not yet been confirmed.

In the past, there have been over 10,000 visitors to Chiswick House’s Conservatory to explore the ‘beautiful and historic’ collection of Camellias. This year, due to the coronavirus opening up the conservatory isn’t an option. But there is still ‘a lot of fun activities and content’ planned.

‘Since we are unable to welcome you all into the Conservatory at present, we are bringing the best of our camellias to you at home. Across our website and social media channels we will be hosting plenty of camellia themed content – including behind the scenes footage with our gardening team, top tips for caring for your camellias at home, and a photography competition, supported by the International Camellia Society’ said organisers.
