Hidden Valley Gardens offer colourful, cottage-style planting across 3.5 acres in a secluded valley. Beds and borders are crammed with herbaceous perennials, shrubs and grasses. There is a potager for vegetables, herbs, soft fruit and cut flowers. This RHS Partner Garden, with several awards to its name, also provides diversity with a large wildlife pond, Japanese and Mediterranean areas, and a fernery.
Historic, family-run Tregrehan has an enviable location for a woodland garden at the head of St Austell Bay. Towering conifers from the early Victorian plant hunters combined with botanically-important recent planting result in more than 150 trees of champion status. This garden is a delight at any time. The old grain mill, walled garden and magnificent glasshouse are also wonderful spaces to enjoy.
The booking form will be available in March 2020.
Our members have some truly beautiful and interesting gardens. Take a look to see some of the wonderful things growing.
You can take out CGS membership as an individual or as a family and there are lots of benefits.
