Flowers from a top Dutch bulb grower will be shown at the Falmouth Spring Flower Show at the Princess Pavilion this weekend.

Pots of hyacinths, bowls of daffodils, and a new variety of muscari have been sent from Holland by Carlos van der Veek and his company Fluwel.

Carlos, who was in Cornwall recently visiting daffodil growers including Ron Scamp, president of Falmouth’s flower show, has one of the largest collection of daffodils in the world.

Ron, who grows over 450 of his own daffodil varieties in Falmouth which are sold as bulbs to Holland and all over the world, said: "I have known Carlos for many years as a business contact and friend. He and his wife have stayed with us and as a family we always look forward to his visits.

"I am delighted we will be showing some of his varieties at our show, including a new muscari seen for the first time in Cornwall."

The 108th flower show will include18 local trade stands with plants, garden ornaments, gifts and locally sourced food. A free exhibition by the Falmouth WI celebrating their 100th anniversary includes a special floral tribute by the flower show’s vice president Elizabeth Doidge.

The show is open on Saturday from 10-5pm and Sunday, 10-4pm with the presentation of cups at 3.30pm.
