The Red Lion at Blackwater secured the cup for best individual display thanks to their hanging basket arrangement. Peterville Inn and the Chiverton Arms were joint winners of the most colourful display, and the crowning accolade of best overall display was scooped by the Chiverton Arms.
Upon receiving two cups, Carol Seaborne from the Chiverton Arms said: "Thank you so much I am really thrilled to win and I really enjoy keeping the Chiverton Arms looking beautifully planted."
Each outdoor flower arrangement was marked by independent judges Beryl Thomas and Mike Furness, and the winner's cups were presented by Cornwall Councillor Peter Mitchell.
Judge Mike Furness said: "I appreciate how much work is involved in keeping high quality displays in good order for a whole season, but it is so worth the effort.
"Well done to all of the publican's this year, it has been very difficult to choose one over another. Special congratulations to this year's cup winners in the three categories."
The St Agnes Publican Planting Challenge was set up last year by the St Agnes Chamber of Commerce 'Beautify the Parish' Group.
Cornwall Councillor Peter Mitchell said: "What a great initiative by the St Agnes Chamber of Commerce and well done to the winners, their efforts to beautify our community is appreciated and has been recognised."
