Cornwall Day Six

A Day late, but that's because we opted to travel home last night rather than this morning. We often leave Cornwall on the last evening of our holiday rather than the following morning as the roads are so much quieter, allowing us to save a lot of time on the 5 hour journey (plus breaks).

So on day six, we started off with a couple of quick trips to nurseries near to where we were staying, firstly to collect our plants from Hayle Plants, and then pick up a couple we had not decided on at the time at Hardy Exotics before heading to Trewidden Nursery. As you may recall Trewidden won Gold last year at Chelsea and are well known for interesting and unusual succulents, Restios and proteas in particular as well as having a range of other plants too.

Just a few photos for now, as there will be a dedicated post in due course.


Following on from Trewedden and we made our final garden visit on our trip to the Minack Theatre. We have posted about this before (see here).





That rounds off our trip, plenty of more detailed posts to follow

  1. Wow, the Minack Theatre looked particularly beautiful that day. What a fantastic spot. I remember it well from our last trip.

    And the plants at Trewidden, so perfect! Are you going to have a longer post about your visit there?

  7. Those cliffs are incredible, and I love all the plants along the walkway. It certainly adds a bit more of the dramatic to the dramas. :)

  9. I do love the Minac, though I have never seen a play there. Did you buy any restios? They are something I always nearly buy but chicken out of, and I can't really see them fitting in this garden, despite finally having restio-friendly conditions. Maybe one day when I get bored with things...
