Upcoming Events

  • Day Trip by Coach to Hestercombe, Cheddon Fitzpaine, Taunton

    This 50-acre garden spans three centuries of garden design from the 1760s to the early Edwardian era of the 1900s. The Daisy Steps, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, create a link between his formal Edwardian garden and the earlier Landscape Garden of the 1760s, designed by Coplestone Warre Bamfylde, which includes the dramatic Great Cascade.

    The Great Platt, a sunken parterre laid out with geometric borders, includes delightful planting schemes specified by Gertrude Jekyll.

    The many structures and viewing points add to the creativity that is displayed throughout this beautiful garden.

    The booking form is available to download here or in hard copy, upon request, from the organiser.

  • Self-drive Visit to National Dahlia Collection, Kehelland and Kehelland Trust, Camborne

    The National Dahlia Collection relocated from the outskirts of Penzance to this new site in 2021 under the management of Louise Danks who was Production Manager at the previous location.

    This colourful collection combines in excess of 1700 different cultivars and more than 20 species dahlias – a highly productive and fashionable flower in current times! Join us for a tour, a posy-making workshop and top tips for summer dahlia care, seed collection and sowing.

    The Kehelland Horticultural Centre was established in 1982 to provide a rural horticultural setting for the support of young people and adults with learning or physical disabilities.

    We will be guided around the 16-acre site where a variety of crops, such as tomatoes, chillies and apples are grown.

    Specialising in producing their own Cornish variety apple juices, the Trust initiated one of the first Apple Days in the Duchy in 2004, and organises a giant vegetable competition as well as ChilliFest.

    An extensive plant nursery produces seasonal bedding plants, herbs, herbaceous perennials, native flowers, shrubs and trees that are beneficial to wildlife.
