People & Places visit

We were invited by the Eden Project’s People & Places Project to have a look around their nurseries near Pentewan.

One of their team was making a show display for the Spring Flower Show at Boconnoc on Saturday. They were making a ‘ Living Room’

A living armchair
A living carpet
lots of plants for the display

Watering Lane Nurseries
Giant Greenhouses – makes Boot Up! look a bit small! They were originally built to grow the tall tropical rain forest now in the Tropical Biome at Eden.
Some of the clients pricking out the valuable lettuce crop for the Eden canteen

The lettuce growing
Lettuce is the main cash crop

A living air plant that will make the curtains for the living room display
The Fields
Spring onion crop in a huge polytunnel
Dodging the sprinklers
and of course we finished the day with a working lunch at Charelstown Harbour. Its a hard life!
