Garden Visits

Garden Visits  GroupThere are times when you need to stop working in your own garden and get inspiration from other people’s creativity and hard work. Does this apply to you? In that case, you would fit in well in our group! We do not have a waiting list, so get in touch if you would like to join us. Our programme of visits to gardens, usually in Cornwall and Devon, starts in February to visit a snowdrop garden and ends in October to admire the autumn colours.

Update 22nd May 2020

Now that we can travel further afield for our exercise, our photo gallery now includes many photos taken from the whole of South East Cornwall and beyond.  A big thank you to the members who e-mail me their photos to post on our website page.  Don't forget to send photos of your gardens too!

Update 1st May 2020

I have now created a new page called "The Cornish countryside through the lockdown months."

Those of us who were lucky enough not to have to self-isolate were able to go out for our daily exercise during the lockdown months.

Taking photos of trees, shrubs and flowers to share with friends and family gave us all an additional purpose to our walks.  So let us share all our photos with the members of the group.  E-mail them to me and I will post them for you on this page.


Update of 29th April 2020

Like me you have no doubt missed visiting gardens.  Instead you have had more time working in your own garden.  In order to remain connected I thought that it would be a good idea if we could share photos of each other's gardens.

To that effect I have created a new page called "Members' gardens" which you can access through the left hand menu.  To start the ball rolling, I have posted photos of my garden.

I look forward to receiving photos of yours for inclusion on this page.


Update of 14th March 2020

It is with a very heart that, following consultation with our Chairman, I have decided to cancel our programme of visits due to the Coronavirus.

All members of the group have been sent an e-mail informing them of this decision.

I will be in touch when it will be safe to resume our programme of visits.


Planning the 2020 programme

We met on Monday 11th November 2019 in the Royal Oak Inn, Lostwithiel in order to start planning our 2020 programme.   We met again on Friday 21st February 2020 in the Royal Oak Inn, Lostwithiel to confirm our plans.  A big THANK YOU to everybody who volunteered ideas towards the programme and to the members who did the research to confirm dates and other details.

Our exciting programme for 2020 is on the website and each member will receive a copy.  Visits are advertised by e-mail two weeks in advance with full details.
Our programme of visits will start on 18th March when we will visit Trewithen Garden.
