Camellia Festival

by Stefania Del Zotto on February 10, 2012

Chiswick House and Gardens Trust will be hosting the second annual Camellia Festival in February 2012 which celebrates the many unique flowers on display there. Running until 18 March 2012, the festival will be open 10am until 4pm daily and is open to the public.

The Chiswick Gardens Conservatory in Chiswick, London, was designed by Samuel Ware in 1813 and many of the flowers and plants on show are descended from the original planting in 1828. This includes the stunning Middlemist’s Red which is one of only two in the world known to exist.

Chiswick House and Gardens’ newly restored Italian Garden, created for the 6th Duke of Devonshire in 1814, has been replanted with an early display of spring flowers. Additionally, every Wednesday from February 18 to March 18, there will be an opportunity to book a private view followed by a specialist lecture by leading Camellia expert, Jennifer Trehane.
