Last year the nursery celebrated 30 years at Burncoose.
Charles trained as a merchant banker before returning to Cornwall to run Caerhays Castle Gardens and Burncoose Nurseries. Caerhays is holder of the Plant Heritage National Collection of magnolias and, in the 1920’s Caerhays bred the first x williamsii strain of camellia which are noted for their hardiness and floriferousness. Today there are about 10,000 x williamsii varieties of camellia grown worldwide. Caerhays and Burncoose continue to breed and propagate new magnolia, camellia and rhododendron hybrids many of which are available on this website.
