erstanfo(8/9 Olympia WA)June 17, 2005

I'm planning a trip to Southwest England the first of July.

I've located the following gardens that look appealing from their web pages.

Any additional recomendatons or must see I have missed? Any of these that I should skip?



Hadspen Garden & Nursery,,Barrington Court, Winsford Walled Garden, RHS Rosemoor, Fernwood Nursery - Natl Phormium Collection, Pine Lodge Garden & Nursery,

Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Garden House, Buckland Abbey,

Castle Drogo Garden, University of Exeter Botanic Garden,

Hestercombe, University of Bristol Botanic Garden,

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Last July I went on a self-designed garden tour in England and visited some of the gardens you list (Hadspen, Garden House,) wish I had seen others on your list (Hestercombe, Heligan) and have one very definite recommendation to make: Bosvigo. Please feel free to email me at for more details and photos, plus vital advice like "You won't believe how long it takes to drive short distances!"
