Trelissick Garden in Spring

Following on from our Woodland walk in the Trelissick estate we entered the garden. Although the sun was beginning to fade again behind the hazy clouds and the wind becoming increasingly chilly, we enjoyed a quick walk around the top part of the gardens taking in the wonderful spring blooms that are currently in flower, mainly Azaleas and Rhododendrons.

From the ferry entrance you find yourself in the Dell which is crammed full of newly emerging herbaceous perennials and spring bulbs among the shrubs and trees, including this stand of Matteuccia Struthiopteris  ostrich or shuttlecock ferns below.

The Main Lawn is the heart of the garden and best during the summer with wide herbaceous borders. And for the first time I managed to find the pretty wrought-iron bench in the corner empty.

The Spring Walk close to the house is where you will find meandering pathways lined with the  jewel-like colours of Azaleas and Rhododendrons and under planted with hellebores and erythroniums and the wonderful bulb, Scilla liliohyacinthus.

Just enough time to head into the Crofter’s Café for a coffee and then visit the shop and plant stalls for a little retail therapy.  Books for the grandsons and plants for me.

This is a garden of ever-changing palettes and spring is just the beginning. Next month I need to return to catch the magnificent wisteria in bloom.
