At 60ft (18.2 meters) the Cotehele garland - a tradition that was started in the 1950s and is created by using flowers picked and dried in the grounds of the Tudor mansion - is the longest at any Trust property in the country. Using flowers such as Ornamental Grasses, Everlasting Sand Flower, Straw Flower, Paper Daisy, Paper rose and Statice, the poor summer weather has meant that only 20,000 flowers have been picked this year rather than the usual 30,000.
