Camellia Show 2017

The Camellia Show returns from 3rd March to 2nd April 2017.
Come and admire the blooming Camellias in the beautifully restored Conservatory.

The Camellias of Chiswick House are a national treasure and believed to be the oldest collection under glass in the Western world. Come and visit the fully restored Conservatory to see rare and historically important examples of these beautiful plants, with a gorgeous array of blooms; pink, red, white and striped.

Today’s collection consists of 33 different varieties, many of which are descended from the original planting in 1828.  Among them is the unique Middlemist’s red, originally brought from China in 1804 by Londoner John Middlemist, a nurseryman from Shepherds Bush.  It is one of only two in the world known to exist – the other being in Waitangi in New Zealand.

'It really deserves a visit. Very beautiful conservatory and gardens. I loved the visit today.'
