Cornish Gardens in Bloom

Now that spring has sprung, we’re looking forward to visiting some of our favourite Cornish Gardens. Here’s a selection of our top spots in Cornwall that are open to the public over the next few weeks.

Tregothnan
Did you know? Tregothnan began supplying England’s first tea, which partly contains home-grown leaves in 2005. That’s 10 years of tea!

For one weekend a year, Tregothnan opens its usually private gates to the public to give people the opportunity to explore the workings of their beautiful grounds. This year, the historic estate will be open on Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th April. Tickets are £10 with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.

The estate is located on banks of the beautiful River Fal. Keep an eye out for the sweeping vistas and peaceful secluded groves, relax and unwind in the stunning surroundings of the ancient camellias and explore the mountainous magnolias. Oh and the garden boasts the biggest Rhododendrons in the world with 40 foot crescendos of full flower!

Foodie tip: make sure you tuck into a Cornish cream tea, served with a cup of Tregothnan’s tea which is grown on site

Enys Gardens
Famed for its microclimate, the gardens at Enys are almost frost free all year round which enables many tender plants and ancient trees to flourish. There are 30 acres to explore and in the spring, the spectacular six-acre carpet of bluebells in the parkland, known as Parc Lye, is an amazing sight to behold.

Foodie tip: pop into their café and try some of the honey produced by the estate’s colony of bees. They call their honey “Tinkerbell” due to its light, delicate citrus flavour!

Enys Gardens

Glendurgan
Situated above the hamlet of Durgan on the Helford River near Falmouth, Glendurgan boasts three steep valleys of sub-tropical gardens. Lose yourself in the 1830s maze of clipped cherry laurel, walk the coastal paths and explore the wild Cornish blooms but most of all, don’t forget to take a moment to listen out for birdsong and babbling brooks.

Foodie tip: after a morning hiking the valleys, stop off at Glendurgan’s Tea House and enjoy a well-deserved slice of cake, homemade on the estate

Pull on your wellies and get exploring, we’d love to see which spring shoots you discover. Why not post a few pictures on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram – don’t forget to tag us in!

Pepé’s Journal #3

Pepé is growing quickly and he’s becoming very inquisitive. His latest escapade saw him playing with a tube of paint – it did not end well!

Here he is hiding by the RAIN collection in our Falmouth Shop. Even getting soaked in the rain didn’t wash the paint out of his fur!

Here I am with our planters, looking great with the first signs of spring. The daffodils are now all but gone, but poking their heads through are some lovely tulips, mixed in with some very cute crocuses. The bulbs were layered in the plant pot to bring joy for the next few months…an idea we saw on Gardeners’ World. Woof woof, Monty, my favourite gardener!

Armed with gloves, wellies, waterproofs and litter pickers the team, along with a huge group of volunteers, took to the sands to help clean up the beach. Picking up litter and recording their findings to help the Marine Conservation Society keep track of what types of rubbish are washing up on our shores.
