Gardens to visit in Cornwall
Gardens to visit in Cornwall including Heligan and many up to date reviews.
Cornwall is one of our favourite destinations especially in Spring and early summer when most of the gardens are at their best. The camellias start appearing as early as December in some places with daffodils in early January. The main season however is from March onwards when the magnolias and rhododendrons begin to flower. The season for these plants lasts to around late May but after that time there are plenty of Gardens with summer interest.
Two small cottage gardens I would recommend are Poppy Cottage Garden on the Roseland peninsula and Pinsla Garden and Nursery. Both are full of colour from early summer onwards and whilst fairly small you will come away with plenty of ideas for your own garden and perhaps a few plants too. The weather in Cornwall is mild and wet in Winter, and warm in summer with a little more rain than the rest of the country. You may however be lucky to visit during a prolonged dry spell in the summer when the temperatures can lift to the mid twenties centigrade. We suggest that you spend at least a few days to make the most of your visit.
So if you are visiting towns like Penzance, Newquay, Truro, St Ives and other places we have all the information you require.
So use our index or map to plan your break and you may also want to use the hotels detailed on our guide which have genuine visitor reviews. If you would prefer to go on a guided tour then we can arrange this for you so why not request one of our garden holiday brochures.
