At Bickham House, we will discover seven acres of colour co-ordinated borders, mature trees, a fernery and a water garden. There is a formal parterre complete with lily pond and a walled garden full of vegetables and flowers. A palm tree avenue leads to a summerhouse.
Cadhay Garden provides a tranquil setting for the magnificent Elizabethan manor house built in 1550, a tour of which is an option. Full of colour, the garden includes a 120ft herbaceous bed planted with cottage garden plants. There are clematis, roses and lilies as well as two medieval fishponds. The walled garden has been transformed into allotments.
Our booking form will be available in March.

Following on from our successful event on Sunday, our friends at Wyevale Garden Centre in Par have asked us to join them to host another workshop this Thursday. It was great to meet so many of you but we'd love to help even more of you to get ready for the junior competitive classes of this year's Cornwall Garden Society Spring Flower Show which is now less than two months away!
Join in the fun at Wyevale Garden Centre in Par from 10:30am - 1pm on Thursday 21st February.
Spring comes early in West Cornwall so our first visit is to Trewidden, a magnificent, privately-owned Victorian garden where Head Gardener, Richard Morton and his team will show us Asiatic magnolias, early shrubs and spring flowers.
We then travel to Lady Banham’s riverside garden at Penberth with its rare daffodils, early shrubs and trees, and granite features and paths. Our guides will be Jeff Rowe and Claire Batten from Penberth Plants, winners of six RHS Chelsea Gold medals.
