Cornwall's balmy warm climate is ideal for plant growth, particularly with the mild Winters and early Springs. Our gardens are home to a wealth of exotic, rare and beautiful plants and trees many of them established in the early nineteenth century due to the Victorian sponsorship of plant hunting expeditions worldwide Many of the larger estates vied to create the most unique gardens, and most of these now owned by the National Trust, are open to the public.
