Guernsey floral festivals

2018 floral events in Guernsey

  • North Show & Battle of Flowers: 22 – 23 August

  • NCCPG Nerine Festival: 6 – 20 October

RHS Britain in Bloom Gold Award

It may only be 25 square miles but Guernsey’s floral delights are renown around the world. The natural beauty and climate of the island from the westerly orchid fields to the wildflower strewn cliffs and southern bluebell woods are complimented by beautiful floral displays of which St Peter Port is an RHS Britain in Bloom Gold winner. 

Clematis and Lilies

Guernsey produces the largest number of Clematis in the world and is also known for its Nerines, or Guernsey Lilies. Originally thought to have been washed up on the shore from a shipwrecked vessel, the Samiensis variety took to Guernsey soil and has been growing on the island for many years. 

Floral Guernsey

Recognising the importance of the horticultural industry on the island, Floral Guernsey was formed around 20 years ago and now organise three annual floral events during the Spring, Summer and Autumn of each year to coincide with abundant natural displays on the island.

During the festivals nurseries open their doors for workshops and gardening advice, there are specialist guided walks and private gardens will be open for viewing. Heritage seeds and bulbs can be purchased and gardening experts will often be present with many famous faces in attendance in past years.

As well as the Floral Guernsey Festivals, the annual Guernsey Battle of Flowers festival also takes place each summer and there is a dedicated Nerine Festival each Autumn.
