Find a Wonderful Haven for Unusual Blooms

Isles of Scilly

The Isles of Scilly are world famous for exporting scented narcissi; beautiful delicate flowers that grow through the winter

The Isles of Scilly, warmed by the Gulf Stream, are a haven for unusual and very beautiful flowers and plants. Frost and snow rarely make an appearance, so gardeners can grow exotic species from all over the world.

As you walk across the islands you’ll spot vibrant, sun-loving plants from the Canaries, South Africa, South America, Australia and New Zealand – all looking wonderfully at home here in Scilly. For the islands’ flower farmers, the season starts in October when the first of the scented narcissi are picked and they work, pretty much every day, through to the end of March.

Christmas is really busy, as you’d imagine, as is Valentine’s Day, Mothering Sunday and, if it’s early, Easter! Come and see the seasonal blooms of Scilly.
