The weather may have been mixed but for four days last week (11th-14th July) there was nothing but bright colour to cheer the shoppers and workers of Truro on Lemon Quay.

The Garden Truro festival, which coincided with judging of Truro in Bloom, was a celebration of gardens and gardening, and despite a mixed bag weather wise, created a lovely atmosphere, which also tied in with the weekly farmer’s market on the Wednesday and Saturday.

We put together a display to showcase a snapshot of Trevena Cross and got the opportunity to meet and chat to lots of new people – many from the Truro area who had never even heard of us before.

Garden Truro was a great eye-opener and the perfect occasion to talk to passionate garden enthusiasts, with varying levels of plant and garden knowledge. The many compliments and genuine interest we received was very encouraging, and we are pleased to have already welcomed visitors to the event, to our garden centre, within just a couple of days!

Forging new relationships, to join the wonderful, loyal customer base we have already developed, was an exciting prospect, and we’re pleased to now be on that journey, with the help of events like Garden Truro, which allow us to take Trevena Cross out to the people every now and then!
