You can read more about the creators of some of these remarkable gardens here on our Cornwall Garden Information page.  We also have a listing of Cornwall Garden Videos.

About the Gardens of Cornwall

The Garden of Cornwall reflects the history of the region stretching as far back as the Iron Age. The variety of gardens that exist in Cornwall allows the visitor to explore estates, castles, manor houses, in sea-facing valleys and walled enclosures hidden away from anyone but a visitor.

Many of these Cornwall gardens owe much to the world travels undertaken by plant hunters in the 19th century as well as the influence of the Gulf Stream and the almost frost-free climate that exists because of it. Mild winters and warm summers play an important part in sustaining these unique gardens. A large number of these gardens in Cornwall host specimens of rare and most beautiful plants and trees not found elsewhere in the United Kingdom.

The National Trust in Cornwall is home to many of the fine Gardens in our Cornwall Gardens list.
