Glendurgan will reopen on Saturday 11th February, and you will be able to see the colour coming through once again. As you wander around the garden, keep an eye out for the delicate white snowdrop. There will also be daffodils and camellias blooming throughout February, making this the time of year to see beautiful spring flowers before there are too many visitors. After a walk around the garden, there will also be a chance to warm up with hot chocolate and cake at the Tea House as well.
Trelissick's mild climate means that flowering rhododendrons and camellias are bringing colour to the garden as early as February, adding that much-needed brightness after a cold and wet winter. The borders of the garden walks are scattered with pure white snowdrops, daffodils and crocuses and later into spring the magnolia will be blooming, a sure sign of spring in Cornwall.
Spring tends to come earlier to Cornwall than the rest of the country, so it is much surprise seeing blooms as early as February, especially at Trengwainton. Snowdrops are one of the first to bloom, and these are the flowers which can easily evoke some reactions. Even on the chilliest day, seeing the bowed heads of snowdrops will lift your spirits and the best place to see them at Trengwainton is around the trees which line the Drive and Long Walk.
Pinetum Park and Pine Lodge Gardens
This 30-acre estate at St Austell comprises gardens within a garden. From February onwards, this garden starts to burst with colour with rhododendrons, camellias, daffodils, magnolias and crocus. Take a walk through the Park and you will also see scatterings of snowdrop amongst the trees.
Hidden Valley Gardens
A hidden gem on the south coast, this garden at Par is a must visit for garden lovers and those in search of a relaxing walk. Every year there is a wonderful display of snowdrop which creates a sweeping blanket at the entrance to the garden. Then why not follow the path along towards the Japanese Zen Garden to see the botanical plants, a wonderful way to spend an afternoon outdoors.
