Representing the very best of the huge number of estates and gardens open to the public in Cornwall

About this book:

Their diversity is astonishing: from the castle setting of Caerhays, with its long traditions of magnolia and camellia propagation dating back to the days of the Victorian plant hunters, to the cutting-edge of contemporary garden sculpture at Tremenheere.

Also in the group are an extraordinary Abbey Garden on Tresco in the Isles of Scilly, the Mediterranean jewel of Lamorran House Gardens and the historic Tregothnan, as well family favourites including The Eden Project, Trebah, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the gardens of the National Trust.

Cornwall’s mild climate, its mineral rich soils, maritime influences and extraordinary landscapes coupled with the skill and dedication of owners and head gardeners mean that these nineteen gardens represent globally important horticulture. Visits to any of the nineteen Great Gardens will inspire, delight and amaze.
