    Started in Spring 1994, Botallick is a spring woodland garden with an extensive collection of magnolias, camellias and rhododendrons spread over four acres. It also includes an orchard stocked with Cornish varieties and wild flowers. The Bucknell family who own the garden often exhibit blooms in the competitive Classes at our annual Spring Flower Show.

    Sisters, Adrienne and Trish, are developing South Bosent with wildlife in mind. It comprises several themed gardens, woodland plantings, large mixed borders and a four-acre meadow. Other features include a mini-lake, waterfall and rill on the terrace,and several plant collections, all designed to provide year-round interest. Along with thousands of planted bulbs throughout the garden, a bluebell wood runs alongside the stream pathway.
