Upcoming Events

  • Garden Holiday

    Visiting Gardens of Yorkshire

    Taking in RHS Harlow Carr, Newby Hall, Castle Howard, RHS Scampston Walled Gardens, Helmsley Walled Gardens and the delightfully-named Breezy Knees Garden & Nursery, this will be your chance to experience Yorkshire at its summery best.

    Visits to National Trust Packwood House on the way up and National Trust Baddesley Clinton House on the way home will punctuate our journeys and provide further interest.

    The booking form and full itinerary was included in our December 2016 mailing.  

  • Self-drive garden visits

    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.
