Lost Gardens of Heligan


When you run the gift shop for a 200 acre tourist attraction in Cornwall, you are always on the look out for new products that represent the work you do and appeal to the abundance of tourists and locals who visit regularly.

The retail outlet buyers spotted our stock puzzle ‘Tim Bulmer’s Cornwall’ at a trade fair and recognised that the humorous and modern illustrated map jigsaw of Cornwall would sell well in their store. With a trade discount of 40% and a low minimum order quantity of only 24 units they could have it delivered quickly and trial its success.

 However they also wanted to make their own puzzle and after trying a few different images they decided to go for a montage photo puzzle. They realised that a single image didn’t represent the whole of what they do at the gardens, but the montage did and so ‘A Year at Heligan’ 1000 piece puzzle was born. Their puzzle is made close by at our Devon jigsaw factory and as environmentally conscious as possible.
