UPDATE 15/08/2015

In August the garden group decided to focus on local gardens.  We went to the three gardens open for charity in Lerryn and enjoyed a superb afternoon. 

Some of the group also revisited the Hidden Valley garden which was in full bloom. After our initial visit, entrance to the garden is free for the season, so well worth a visit.

Our September visit is still to be confirmed

Report from Brenda 27th April 2015

 -  Garden visit to Tregrehan  At last the garden visiting group went on its first outing!  Adverse weather prevented the visit to Caerhays in March, and an alternative date to suit, was not available due to busy diaries.


Hidden Valley Gardens

Unfortunately, Enys Garden at Penryn is not open on the 8th May.  I propose we keep the date and visit a local garden, Hidden Valley Gardens, Treesmill, Par instead.  Admission is £4.50 and includes a tea or coffee.
