The Toby Buckland Garden Festival
Powderham Castle, Kenton, Exeter. EX6 8JQ
For our first coach trip of 2017, we are visiting the fourth Toby Buckland Garden Festival held in the beautiful setting of Powderham Castle. This is a diverse and quality show both in terms of exhibitors and entertainment. 2016 saw a total of 187 exhibitors displaying a wide range of plants, garden sundries, crafts and more. There will be specialist talks by well-known gardening personalities on all manner of horticultural topics and we can look forward to a superb range of local foods to satisfy all tastes. Do wear comfortable shoes!
The booking form will be included in our March 2017 mailing.
National Trust Trengwainton
Madron, Penzance TR20 8RZ
We are invited to view our Lord Lieutenant’s private garden. At this time of year, its magnificent Primula, spring shrubs and Magnolia will be a delight. After a short talk about the Bolitho family and its history, we will enjoy a private visit to Trengwainton itself, which will be closed to the public, for a ‘behind the scenes’ tour with the Head Gardener. This will be a rare treat and provide us with an opportunity to see the glass houses and learn about the rejuvenation programme that has been put in place following recent storm damage. The booking form will be included in our March 2017 mailing.
