Situated in the heart of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula Poppy Cottage Garden covers about one acre full of colour for all year - round interest. Planted as a series of rooms, which are small gardens in themselves, it is brimming with bulbs, herbaceous, grasses, shrubs and even exotics, mainly colour themed, and with plenty of places to sit and enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of home made cake.
There is also a small orchard with unusual ducks and chickens, and a small nursery area with a wide range of herbaceous plants for sale.
Dogs on leads are very welcome.

For this month’s lectures we will be joined by Alan Power. Join us at The Alverton, Tregolls Road, Truro from 7:30pm, to learn all about his time working at Stourhead
Inspired by his mother to follow a career in horticulture and arboriculture, Alan has worked in and managed some of the most beautiful gardens and estates in the country, notably Mount Stewart in Northern Ireland, Hidcote Manor in Gloucestershire and Stourhead in Wiltshire.
He has collaborated with the Gardeners’ World team on many occasions; presented on BBC Radio 4; co-presented British Gardens in Time on BBC4, and has lectured across Europe and North America.
In 2016, Alan was presented with an Honorary Doctorate by Writtle University for his outstanding contribution to horticulture.
