The annual flower garland at National Trust's Cotehele, near Callington, is now open to the public.

As the finale of the year's cultivation, this cherished spectacle has been a highlight in the Great Hall since 1956.

The 60-foot-long garland boasts 30,000 blossoms, all grown and dried over ten months of care carried out on the estate.

It took a total of 60 garden staff and volunteers a total of 12 days to assemble.

In the end, the astonishing creation weighed 19 stone.

The display of this unique masterpiece is open to visitors for viewings until January 7, 2024.

The National Trust recommends a visit to Cotehele for not only the spectacular garland but also its historical and horticultural offerings.

Cotehele was a long-standing ancestral home to the Edgcumbe family.

The Tudor house is filled with tapestries, armours, pewter, brass, and traditional oak furniture.

The decor of the interiors remains largely unchanged.

The outdoor trail is equally compelling with the formal terraces, the tranquil Upper Garden, the Valley Garden housing a medieval stewpond and dovecote, and the orchards of local apples and cherries.

Colorful flower displays mark changes in seasons from the spring blooms and summer borders to autumnal fruits and winter snowdrops.

Remnants of the 19th-century local industries are apparent at Cotehele Quay, giving visitors a glimpse of the once bustling cargo operations.

The restored 'Shamrock' sailing barge and the Edgcumbe, serving a traditional Cornish cream tea, offers enriching experiences at the quay.

The Discovery Centre, located close by, provides an understanding of the Tamar Valley's history and serves as the gateway to the estate and its picturesque sister property, the Cotehele Mill.
