Spring at Eden
As the days grow longer, and the sun begins to shine with a little more warmth, we’re putting the long winter behind us and welcoming in the spring at Eden! You’ll find Eden awash with colour and scent. From the fabulous display of tulips, aloes and proteas blooming in our Mediterranean Biome, to the exotic ‘firework flowers’ of the Guiana Chestnut, the eccentric but beautiful flowers of the Dutchman’s Pipe plant in the Rainforest Biome and swathes of daffodils painting the outdoor landscape in wonderful sunny yellows, spring arrives in glorious technicolour at Eden!
If you fancy honing your gardening knowledge, we’re also offer a range of gardening courses which take place between September and March, taught by our own horticulturists. Choose from one-hour, half-day or full-day sessions.

West Haye Farm, Haye, Callington PL17 7JW, Anvil Cottage and Windmills Garden, South Hill, Callington PL17 7LP
In 1994, Paul Haye levelled an unkempt field at West Haye Farm with just a pick and shovel; his only mechanical assistance being a digger to create two ponds. Since 2002, Paul and his wife have developed their horticultural haven, adding new plants, a shrubbery and a kitchen garden.
Geoff and Barbara Clemerson designed their garden at Anvil Cottage to attract many species of bird with shrubs and trees providing cover and nesting sites. Steps from a rather formal front garden lead up to an area with panoramic views across the southern end of Bodmin Moor and into a rose garden, beyond which is a small wild space that includes a hot bed and jungle garden.
Windmills Garden, owned by Peter and Sue Tunnicliffe, nestles next to St. Sampson’s, a medieval church, on the site of an old rectory. It is a garden full of surprises with formal paths and steps to flower beds, vegetables and soft fruit areas, a water feature with rustic stone bridge and a pergola.
The booking form will be included in our March 2017 mailing.
