Welcome to your July newsletter

Don't miss your chance to visit the gardens and house on the afternoon of Bank Holiday Monday in August. We'll be open from 2pm - with last entry at 4pm.

It's the last day we're open until the 1st March 2016, but you can still come and visit the Nursery - it's open all year round, with some very special plants and shrubs for sale.

We hope to see you at Trewithen soon.

Trewithen Gardens - a land of opportunity

Another Trewithen Gardens’ volunteer has won a coveted placement on a nationally recognised horticultural course.

Nicola Johnson has been accepted on the Professional Gardeners Guild Traineeship - a three year placement in three gardens with on the job training and professional career development. 

It’s the third time in as many years that a volunteer has been so inspired by the garden and its Head Gardener Gary Long that they have progressed from volunteer gardening to a career in horticulture. Scarlett English is currently at Kew Gardens completing a three year diploma and Inez Williams was inspired by her Trewithen experiences to take an honours degree in Landscape Design.

Watch our garden change week by week...

After the success of our weekly photo last year, we've chosen a new position in the garden!  

We've started posting a photo on our Facebook page each week of the new view and the hope is it will show how the garden changes throughout the seasons.

Have a look and let us know if there is another part of the garden you would like to see!
