Upcoming Events

  • Self-drive garden visits

    Crugsillick​ Manor, Ruan High Lanes, Truro TR2 5LJ  - This is a wonderful late summer treat. Crugsillick is a lovely old house in an inspirational setting. The garden has been re-landscaped with a large pond and exotic flowering trees and shrubs on several levels. It has wonderful views, a kitchen garden, yew hedges and paths which define the oval lawns and broad mixed borders.

    Rosteague, Portscatho, Truro TR2 5EF -  This is a fantastic opportunity to visit Rosteague, an ancient manor house in a magical setting, with its lawns, flowerbeds and farmland rolling down to the sea. The 17th century French garden is its crowning glory with four large geometrical parterres of intricate box (Buxus sempervirens) hedging and topiary, sheltered by stone walls, which make it an interesting place to explore.

    The booking form will be included in our June 2017 mailing.

  • Garden Holiday

    Visiting Gardens in Wiltshire and the Cotswolds

    With four nights’ accommodation at The Stratton House Hotel in Cirencester, this holiday will include visits to: Berkeley Castle with gardens that Gertrude Jekyll helped to design; Jekka’s Herb Farm with the Queen of Herbs herself as our tour guide; Bowood House and Gardens within one of Capability Brown’s most beautiful parks with a tour of its terraces and private walled gardens; and Rodmarton Manor with its garden of rooms.

    We will also take in four gardens near Cirencester: Daglingworth House, a classical garden; Cerney House Garden where old-fashioned scents and colours abound; Ampney Brook House Gardens with its haven for wildlife; and the nearby Coach House Garden where rill, gravel, herbaceous borders, rose and green gardens prevail.

    Visits to Waterperry Gardens with its beautifullylandscaped ornamental gardens and Buscot Park, which features one of Britain’s finest water gardens and a four seasons garden sheltered by mellow red-bricked walls, are also on the itinerary.

    On the way home, we will stop at Derry Watkins’ nursery with its amazing range of unusual plants and Yeo Valley Organic Garden with its diverse, seasonal patchwork of ornamental and edible plant areas.

    The booking form and full itinerary will be included in our March 2017 mailing.
