It's never too early to start getting into the festive spirit - and Christmas wouldn't be the same without a popular tradition at one of Cornwall's best-loved National Trust properties.
The gardeners at Cotehele have totted up 35,770 dried flowers, making the longest Christmas garland at any National Trust property.
A new exhibition in the breakfast room of the house tells the story of the tradition, now in its 63rd year, through images of past garlands.
It's a twelve month project. So we'll be looking at colour themes and ordering seeds in January, we'll start the sowing and planting process in kind of February March, the harvesting will start in April or May, continuous work right the way through the summer and we start the build in the early part of November. So it's pretty much a ten or eleven month process.
We hope it's going to be nice all year but it doesn't always work like that down here in Cornwall. It's just nice to have the challenge of growing as many flowers as we can throughout the year to get it looking as fantastic as we can.
Everyone's been walking around saying how Christmassy it feels, and it's such a traditional kind of Christmas, bringing it indoors, it's really lovely.
The completed garland can be seen daily from Saturday November 16 until January 5, except Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
Choirs will be performing under the garland most days from November 29.
