New Course at Hidden Valley Gardens
Introduction to Ferns
Saturday, 23rd September 2017, 2pm - 5.30pm
£30 per person to include a Cream Tea
Cornwall is an ideal place for ferns with its mild and humid climate and we have such unique sunken lanes with shady banks where ferns love to grow. I have started collecting a wide variety of ferns here at Hidden Valley Gardens and would like to share my enthusiasm with you on this half day course. There will be a power point presentation with every aspect of fern life, habitats, propagation garden worthy ferns and the Victorian fern craze. This will be followed by a cream tea and stroll around the gardens here at Hidden Valley to see my fern collection and new ferns being grown from spores.
Please email me at email@example.com to book your place. I will then send a confirmation letter with details of payment options.

Padstow Kitchen Garden, Trerethern Farm, Padstow New Trevibban Farm, St Issey, Wadebridge
Padstow Kitchen Garden comprises four acres – nourished, nurtured and tended by sixth generation farmer and former Rick Stein Head Chef, Ross Geach. He grows a huge variety of vegetables that are served in some of the county’s finest restaurants including Rick Stein’s, Jamie Oliver’s, Michelinstarred Number 6 and The Driftwood. Come and see what he does, and how to grow your own.
The garden at New Trevibban Farm was commenced by the Day family in April 2017 and services their holiday homes. As yet incomplete, it was designed by Joe Midwinter and will eventually include formal, children’s and boules areas, with shrubberies, tree avenues, marquee lawns and a Piet Oudolf expanse adapted to the coastal position
A welcome return to 17th century Trenarth, near Constantine and a garden that continually evolves and innovates, providing year-round interest. With its emphasis on unusual and tender plants, structure and form, abundant wildlife, vegetables and orchard, there is something for all tastes. The magnificent dierama collection will be the highlight. A lovely walk down into the valley will bring us over to Chyrose on the opposite side. This is a member’s garden and with its charming terracing, roses, orchard and two vintage tractors, framed by their shared views, it will be a pleasure to visit. The booking form will be available in March
