Potager Garden and Glasshouse Café
Open Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10am - 5pm from March to December
With mature trees and lush herbaceous planting interspersed with fruit and vegetables, Potager aims to demonstrate the beauty of productive organic gardening. There are games to play, hammocks to laze in, boule and badminton to enjoy.
The vegetarian café, in a refurbished wooden greenhouse, serves breakfasts, lunches, cakes, teas and ice cream - all home made from mainly organic ingredients, grown in the garden or by local producers.

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
