The Greenbank’s Favourite Spring Gardens
Our recent spring flowers blog showcases some spectacular spaces to see Falmouth in bloom, but it doesn’t stop there when spring’s in the air; let us introduce more of Falmouth’s gardens, we love to share…
Keep an eye out this spring for Trebah’s special giant rhododendron trees: originating from the Himalayas, these giant, pink flowered trees are most spectacular from the top of the gardens on the ‘Lawn Path’.
The gorgeous blooms of the Rhododendron arboretum absolutely match the flushes of first love or an anniversary toast by the water, and both are perfect photo opportunities.
Sharing the Fal Estuary with the Greenbank, Trelissick’s 30 acre elevated estate above the water really does show the estuary in a gorgeous light, especially with clean spring air and fresh petals on the soil. Wake up, lace up, explore.
Match memories of seashells with those of bluebells at Penryn’s Enys Gardens; Cornwall’s oldest and wisest gardens.
The nurturing Gulf Stream brings unique life to these gardens with tender, sensitive plants that bring calm, quietude and a sincere serenity to our corner of the world. The resident Enys bee’s Tinkerbell honey always goes down a treat –find it at the café shop!
Queen Mary Gardens
Not officially a spring garden, but with Gyllyngvase beach mere footsteps from this immaculately kept sub-tropical garden we thought it only right to include it!
Springtime wanderings on the sand before or after a stroll through the agapanthus and giant gunnera mean you can really experience two worlds within a morning’s exploring – return to the Greenbank for a refreshing afternoon tea to recover!
