Glendurgan Garden

Superb subtropical garden, with special interest for families

Lose yourself in the three valleys of Glendurgan Garden - full of fun, natural beauty and amazing plants.

Discover giant rhubarb plants in the jungle-like lower valley and spiky arid plants basking in the sunny upper slopes.

Wander through the garden down to the beautiful hamlet of Durgan on the Helford River: a place to watch birds and boats, skim stones and build sand-castles.

Find a boat-seat, gigantic tulip-trees and ponds teeming with wildlife. Learn about the Fox family who created this 'small peace [sic] of heaven on earth.'

Address: Mawnan Smith, near Falmouth, TR11 5JZ (½ mile south-west of Mawnan Smith, on road to Helford Passage)

    Appointed by Christopher Lloyd in 1993 as Head Gardener of Great Dixter, Fergus continues to keep the garden constantly changing throughout the season by trying out new plants and plant combinations. He believes in passing on his knowledge through national and international student and volunteer programmes at Dixter, and through the lectures he gives across the world every year. Fergus is keen on plant communities in the wild and especially plants that are native to Turkey. In 2008, he was awarded the RHS Associate of Honour and in 2015, the Veitch Memorial Medal for outstanding contribution to the practice of horticulture
