Self-drive visit to Bokelly, St Kew and Millpond, Lower Amble

Tuesday, September 10, 2019 12:01 AM - Saturday, August 10, 2019 12:01 AM

Bokelly’s seven-acre garden surrounds an historic house with lichened outbuildings and a 15th century barn. An inspirational work in progress by its owner, Henrietta Courtauld, the garden features new plantings for various levels and soils with woodland, an orchard, a vegetable plot and large cutting garden as well as herbal and wildflower areas.

Later, we visit the charming hamlet of Lower Amble to concentrate on Sheilagh Lees’ 20-year-old garden with its wealth of trees and shrubs, herbaceous borders with late flowering roses, fuchsias and perennials, orchard, vegetable garden and lovely millpond.

Our booking form will be available in June.

Upcoming Events

  • Sowing and Planting Workshop for the CGS Spring Flower Show

    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.

  • Self-drive visit - Trewidden Garden, Buryas Bridge and Penberth House, St Buryan

    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.
