Springtime and Easter 2019

Posted on 8 March

 Cornwall is famed for its wonderful coastline which is fabulous at any time of the year but also for its gardens which, in the springtime, are at their best. Soil conditions in this part of the world favour acid loving plants so azaeleas and rhododendrons are especially at home here and are the principal feature of many of the gardens. Some of the finest gardens are in the care of the National Trust and are associated with grand country houses including Lanhydrock, Cothele and Trerice but there are others well worth a visit that stand alone such as Trengwainton and Glendurgan. The National Trust does not have all the best though as the sublime Lost Gardens of Heligan (& of course the Eden Project), Pinetum, Mount Edgecombe, Trelissick and Trebah are also delightful in their differing ways. Easter is a bit later this year (Good Friday is on April 19th) and by then the gardens should be approaching their best so what better time to plan a break? The youngsters too are not neglected at this time of the year as the traditional Easter Egg hunts will feature at many of the National Houses. In addition to the Cornish houses there are many more in Devon that are readily accessible from southeast Cornwall and should certainly be considered in you holiday plans.

Now the daffodils are in bloom and the first flush of green is enlivening the headgerows what better time than now to leave the winter behind and book that spring break with Cornish Collection.
