Designated as an International Camellia Garden of Excellence and one of the Great Gardens of Cornwall, and home to the Rhododendron Kurume Azalea Wilson 50 collection, Trewidden is a fascinating Cornish garden to visit. To ensure you get the most out of your trip to Trewidden, book a guided tour of the garden with Head Gardener Richard Morton, or join him for a tour on the 9th July.
Richard has an extensive knowledge of all things green and gives guided walks around the garden whilst imparting his knowledge about the many species of plants and trees growing there. You will gain a greater insight into Trewidden Garden including future plans for the garden and special places of interest within it.
This year, local artist Gillian Cooper will be running drawing tours in the garden on the first Monday of every month in July, August and September. All levels of ability are welcome to come and improve their skills with short practical exercises. Bring your sketchbook, pencil and rubber, basic pastels and waterbased paints are optional. The tours will run from 1:30pm – 4pm and cost £18 which includes your entry to the garden. To book, please contact Gillian on 07917 877895 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
