Upcoming Events

  • Day Trip by Coach to National Trust Greenway, Galmpton with Ferry Trip on the River Dart

    Enjoy a scenic return boat trip between Dartmouth and Greenway, which Agatha Christie called “the loveliest place in the world” and is now in the care of the National Trust. 

    There will be ample time to explore this much-loved house and productive walled garden with its 120ft-long peach house, vinery, allotment and softly-planted borders, all of which thrive within its protective walls. 

    Pause to relax in the informal garden and enjoy glimpses of the river from its woodland walks.

    The booking form is available to download here or in hard copy, upon request, from the organiser.

  • Self-drive Visit to Minack Theatre Gardens, Porthcurno and Boscrowan, Penzance

    Enjoy a guided tour of the Minack Theatre Gardens with Jeff Rowe and Claire Batten, who have won multiple medals at RHS Chelsea for their specialist exotics, and discover what makes these sub-tropical gardens unique. Learn about the challenges of gardening on a cliff-edge and the species that flourish in unusual climatic conditions, benefitting from the warmth of Cornish granite yet being treated harshly by the strong salt winds off the Atlantic.

    In complete contrast, we then head to Boscrowan, in a sheltered valley near Penzance, for a delicious lunch and a gentle amble around the gardens where the pleasures of herbaceous borders against a wooded backdrop; a wildlife pond; an original revolving Victorian summerhouse; a growing sedum roof, a cutting garden and a bring-and-buy plant stall with proceeds to charity await you.
