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.
As well as our self-drive visit to Trewidden Garden, Buryas Bridge and Penberth House, St Buryan, we will also host our evening lecture on Tuesday 12th March as Kenneth Cox join us to tell us all about The Woodland Garden.
Join us at 7.30pm at The Alverton, Tregolls Road, Truro
