The Cornish Dahlia Society 38th Annual Show

This August, The Cornwall Dahlia Society showcases a weekend of dazzling dahlias in their 38th Annual main show at The Lost Gardens of Heligan!

Marvel at some of The Cornish Dahlia Societies most spectacular dahlias, in beautiful displays around the historic Lost Gardens of over 1000 stunning Dahlias.

“We are excited to be planting up in The Flower Garden 1000 Dahlia plants which will include over 100 different varieties and 15 different classifications!” Katie Kingett- Productive Garden Supervisor at The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

This three-day floral event held from 25th-27th August will feature an exhibition by professional and novice dahlia growers from around Cornwall.  The categories include; ‘a dahlia bloom in a picture frame’ and ‘a vase of 7 blooms of dahlia’. Come along and talk with Championship and Novice growers - or grab a copy of the show schedule. Schedules available from The Cornish Dahlia Societies website.

Brand new to this year is an exciting opportunity for you to get involved. On Sunday 26th August there will be a ‘Peoples Dahlia’ competition, open to anyone not showing or growing dahlias for exhibition. This competition is for a single dahlia of any type in a vase (supplied by the society). It will be judged by the Society and the team at Heligan, purely for its garden decoration value.

Entry to The Dahlia show is included within normal gardens admission charges.
